This unusual breed gets its name from the indian tribe of Chile where they were first discovered. They are known as the Easter chicken because of their ability to lay colored eggs of shades varying from turquoise to deep olive to shades of brown. Adults are of medium size with pea combs. 10 to 20 of these birds make an absolutely beautiful laying flock that is extremely hardy. When the females start laying around 5 months of age it is great fun to see all of the different colored eggs they lay. Order them beetween October, and November and the hens will start to lay their colored eggs just in time for Easter.
