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. CHOCOLATE ORPINGTON BANTAM - The Chocolate Orpington is a rare breed originally imported from Europe. This sweet comical bird even in its bantam size is no small bird. Roosters can weigh up to 5 pounds and hens up to 3 pounds. Their Hershey Chocolate Color and round fluffy bodies reminds me of a Cadbury Egg at Easter time. CORONATION SUSSEX - The Coronation color of the Sussex Chicken is a Pigeon Grey/Blue main and tail against a bright white body. This grey/blue is described as lavender by poultry breeders and is caused by a gene that dilutes the black color The Sussex chicken is an alert, docile breed that can adapt to any surroundings. They are comfortable in both free range or confined spaces.  They lay 240 to 260 large cream to light brown eggs a year. . This is a great dual purpose bird, with its roosters weighing in at approximately 9lbs. , and hens at approximately 7lbs. 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. LARGE FOWL CHOCOLATE CUCKOO ORPINGTON - The Chocolate Cuckoo is a very large docile bird. The roosters weigh 9lbs and the hens weigh 7lbs.Their Cuckoo stripes lying against their creamy chocolate bodies create an extraordinary color variation. The chocolate cuckoo color is a very rare color in the United States and still proves to be difficult to acquire. A unique characteristic of this bird is that their feathers drape down around their feet creating an allusion of floating across the ground.  This Chocolate Cuckoo Color breeds true. LARGE FOWL CHOCOLATE ORPINGTON - The Chocolate Orpington is a breed that was imported from England. There are very few farms in the United States to own this magnificent bird. These adorable chicks always win the Cutest Chick on the Farm award due to their fluffy yellow belly set against a Hershey Chocolate Body. LAVENDER ORPINGTON - This breed we selected from the Hink-JC blood line. The Lavender Orpington is a very large docile bird and is a great breed to have in any back yard flock. They are especially great with children. The Lavender gene is different in genetics than the blue gene in that it will produce consistent Lavender color in all the offspring. 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. 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.
