The Ameraucana (also known as the "Easter egger") chicken breed was developed in the United States in the 1970s, stemming primarily from the Araucana breed, a tail-less bird with tufts that lays blue and green colored egg shells. The breed is known for having a calm and gentle personality and interact well with young children.
