Chickens

BLUE AMERACAUNA - The Ameraucana breed was developed in the United States from chickens imported  from Peru. They should not be confused with the “Easter Egger” as the Ameraucana is a pure breed. This breed of chicken has a very quiet and calm personality and will be sure to attract attention to your flock with its full  beard and muffs. They are excellent layers of blue eggs. It’s always fun when selling eggs to add a few of these  irresistible blue eggs to your basket. These birds are my sons favorite with their fluffy faces and calm  personalities you often see him walking the yard with one on his shoulder. As with other” blue breeds” the blue  trait does not  breed true.  In  addition to blue you could receive black. BLACK COPPER MARANS - Maran chickens originated in the town of Maran France. This is a dual purpose  bird, but best known for its dark brown eggs. Marans lay the darkest egg of all other chickens are highly sought  after. Marans also make great foragers as they scratch lightly and are not destructive to flower beds or other  garden settings. This breed also stands confinement well. We breed the French standard of feathered legs. BLUE COPPER MARANS - Maran chickens originated in the town of maran France. This breed of chicken is a  fast grower which makes them a dual purpose bird. Roosters average 8lbs and hens 7lbs, but they are best  known for their dark brown eggs. The maran chicken lays the darkest egg of all other chicken breeds. We raise  three colors of Maran chickens Black Copper, Blue Copper, and Blue Splash. You can run all three colors of  Maran chickens together and still get purebred Black, Blue and Blue Splash Marans. BLUE SPLASH MARANS - The striking splash pattern on the plumage of this breed makes it a must have in  your flock. The splash pattern can be blue, black or silvery gray. Splash Marans breed true. Splash on Splash  mattings result in 100% splash. Splash on Black Copper result in 100% Blue Copper. For more information  regarding Maran Breeding please see our FAQS page. Because of their genetic background some of our Splash Marans  hatch clean legged. Where Splash Marans lay a very dark brown egg they are not nearly as dark as  Black Copper Marans. BLUE DOUBLE LACED BARNEVELDER - The Barnevelder originated in the town of Barneveld. The double  laced partridge pattern of this very rare breed is as intricate and beautiful as hand sewn lace.  The double lace  pattern occurs only in hens.  Not only is this bird a show stopper, but they are also great egg layers. They lay  dark brown eggs even in the long winter months. Well-kept hens lay 180-200 eggs a year. BUFF BRAHMA - The Brahma chicken is a massive, stately bird with an upright carriage and striking plumage.  Their docile temperament and enormous size is what achieved them the nickname the Majestic Ones. This  breed was developed in the United States from very large birds imported from Shanghai Chine. Their docile  temperament makes them great pets for children and their enormous size make them a dual purpose bird.  Cocks average (12lbs) hens (10lbs). Their plumage is held very tightly and feathers extend all the way down  their legs and the middle toe which allows them to withstand the coldest of winters. They also lay large brown  eggs all winter long. OLIVE EGGER - The Olive Egger is a farm breed created for all the Dr. Seuss Lovers “Green Eggs and Ham”.   Now your children really can have green eggs and ham just like “Sam-I-Am.”  The breed is created with the  Black Copper Maran Rooster, and the Blue Ameraucana hen. Because it is a cross breed they come in all sizes  and colors. Some may have puffy cheeks some may have feathered legs and some could have both.  The shell  of the egg that the Olive Egger hen lays is Olive Green on the outside and Blue on the inside like the  Ameraucana. JUBILLEE ORPINGTON - The Jubilee Orpington was named in honor of the Diamond Jubilee celebration of  Queen Victoria’s reign. The Queen received a flock of these Regal Birds as part of the celebration. With their  impressive mahogany plumage it’s no wonder why they were named for British Royalty.  SALMON FAVEROLLES - Faverolles is a French Breed of chicken that was developed in the 1860’s in North  Central France. Faverolles are characterized by beards, muffs, feathered feet and five toes rather than the usual four.  Although primarily kept today as ornamental and exhibition breed, Faverolles are also known to be  excellent layers of light brown to pinkish eggs. Well-kept hens should lay more than 200 eggs per year.
