This unusual breed gets its name from the indian tribe of Chile where they were first discovered. They are also known as Easter Egger chickens because of their ability to lay colored eggs. Egg shades vary 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. The females start laying around 5-6 months of age and it is great fun to see all of the different colored eggs they lay. Order chicks between September and October and the hens will start laying colored eggs just in time for Easter.
