- Easter Egger Bantam
This is a miniature size of the Easter Egger Standard chicken. We do not offer a specific color variety of this breed, however we do breed for a wide range of mixed colors in the feathering. The natural colored eggs vary from shades of blue, green, and a few brownish/pink eggs. A great breed for backyard enjoyment and natural colored eggs to eat. The Easter Egger bantam chicken is a great broody mother for hatching out babies and a great all around hobby backyard chicken.
Many people who like this breed of chicken also like the standard version of the breed, the Easter Egger Chicken

Beautiful birds and eggs Review by Cami
Arrived very healthy. Hands down the friendliest easter eggers I've ever owned. Even my roo. Mine just started laying and the color of these eggs are beautiful. I love the variation in colors among the chickens I received also. (Posted on 11/7/2019)
Bantam Easter Eggers Review by Brent in Florida March 2018
I ordered 30 Bantam Easter Egger chicks and received 35. They are now about 3 weeks old and I have 32 lively colorful chicks. I will definitely order from Cackle Hatchery again and would highly recommend them to others. Can't wait to see all the different colors they grow up to be. Thanks Cackle (Posted on 3/13/2018)

Easter egger bantams Review by Jayson
We ordered some chicks from cackle last year, and we got some of these bantams. A few of them died, but then cackle hatchery replaced them for us. Now they are doing great and we love them. We will be getting more in the future. (Posted on 1/29/2018)
Easter Egger bantam breed is a great breed. Review by Zestokasis
I got 5 of the Easter Egg bantams from you last year and it wasn't long before I was regretting only getting 5. I can't express how much I love this breed. I have 3 other breeds of bantams as well and although they are also pretty good chickens the Easter egger tops them all. In my opinion they are great layers once they get started, very seldom do I go to the coop and not find a beautiful green or blue egg waiting for me to collect. I highly recommend this breed.

Love my chicks, Awsome customer Service Review by Casandra
Today I received my order, I ordered 30 bantam chicks (15 EE, 5 Cochin, and 10 hatchery choice) and received 36 chicks. my chicks shipped Monday afternoon and arrived on Tuesday afternoon. one did not make it but the remaining 35 are healthy and happy. I did not receive an email with a tracking number Monday, so called Tuesday and the customer service representative was extremely polite and helpful. I had the email with the tracking number before I got off the phone. these chicks made all my friends jealous as they are losing about 1/2 their orders of chicks, the first question I keep getting is where did you get them from. Even the post office employees could not believe how noisy these chicks where. This was my second order and could not be happier with the company! (Posted on 2/24/2016)
Bantams EEers rock!! Review by R. Davis
Ordered a small batch of 10 Bantam EEers and they have been wonderful steady producers, weather hardy and friendly. We absolutely love them and their beautiful green/blue mini eggs. Hope to order more in the future (they're addictive!) thanks Cackle!! (Posted on 2/21/2016)

Dear Sirs Review by Clyde Alabama August 2009
We received the baby chicks Friday morning. They all arrived ok. There was definitely a difference in size from last year. These are a lot tinier. So far they have done ok. But 2 of them got puny the first night. It was my fault and possibly they weren't as hardy as the others, but I didn't have my heat light just right and the temperature was about 92 instead of 98. I finally got it adjusted and they are doing ok so far today. They have been drinking water and eating pretty steady. Also I put Sulmet in their water. Thanks again! We are glad we went ahead and ordered them. We will enjoy them. (Posted on 12/18/2015)
Thanks! Review by Saranne, Tennessee September 2010
A couple years ago I ordered some blue Cochins from you. I lost several and you replaced them. I never wrote and said thank you, so I am writing you now. This year I ordered 30 Easter Egg bantams and I cannot tell you how pleased I am with them. They were hatched 03/17/10 and have been laying over a month already. They are nicely muffed and bearded. Their body shapes and colors are lovely. I have joined the Ameraucana Breeders Club and have seen some pictures of quality show chickens and realize now how nice my chickens are. I am delighted and appreciative. (Posted on 11/20/2015)
