A breed of chicken known as an Easter egger lays pink eggs, according to Moose Manor Farms. Sometimes also referred to as "mutt" chickens, Easter eggers are often crosses between other colored egg layers such as the Ameraucana.

Easter eggers lay not only pink eggs, but also a variety of blue, green and other pastel-colored eggs. While these chickens are known for their cheerful colored eggs, they are also known for being a very friendly breed of chicken. With lineage that can be traced back to South America, the Easter egger has a rich and long history in the poultry world.
