Black Copper Marans

One of my favourites, Marans are sometimes called chocolate eggers because of their dark brown eggs. Black Copper Marans lay the darkest of all the Marans varieties. A heritage breed originally from France they were bred for their spectacular egg colour and high quality meat.  click here for more info

Svart Hona (Swedish Black Hen)

 

We are really excited to have these rare all black chickens. Their most notable feature is that they are all black, even their comb, wattles, skin, bones and connective tissue, but what I enjoy most about them is their personality, they’re a little like a cat, curious but cautiously friendly. They are quite small and fit nicely with the bantams. click here for more info

Temperament: active, friendly, curious
Bird size: small standard
Egg colour: white or cream
Egg size: small/medium
Price: $15 per chick

The Barred Blues

 

Want to add some colour to your egg basket? These are rumpless Araucana x Ameraucana. This is our first generation and we are selecting for the barred colour.

They are early maturing and hens lay medium to large sized blue eggs, roosters finish with a nice blocky carcass and no tail makes them that much quicker to pluck.

The Blues are medium sized chickens, friendly, active and perfect for adding some eye catching variety to your egg carton.  click here for more info

Temperament: active, friendly, easy to handle
Bird size: medium standard
Egg colour: blue
Egg size: medium/large
Price: $12 per chick

 

Olive Eggers

 

Another beautiful addition to add some colour to your egg basket? These are a cross between a Black Copper Marans rooster and Araucana and Cream Legbar x Breda Fowl hens.  click here for more info

Temperament: active, friendly, easy to handle
Bird size: medium standard
Egg colour: olive
Egg size: large
Price: $12 per chick

 

BBS* (Blue, Black, Splash) Breda Fowl

 

 

I love their regal appearance, vulture hocks, lack of comb and gelled-look hairdo. They are very quiet, docile and don't dig up their enclosure, they often seem to prefer to be inside. They do best with other gentle breeds. click here for more info

*BBS refers to the colour and is often called Blue but BBS is more accurate because blue colour chickens when bred to each other produce blue, black and splash coloured offspring.

Temperament: quiet, docile, gentle
Bird size: medium standard
Egg colour: white/tinted
Egg size: medium
Price: $14 per chick

 

Bantams

Bantam Barred Rock

 

These little bantams are mesmerizing in their black and white stripes. Friendly and curious, they are head turners.

 

 

Temperament: active, friendly, easy to handle
Bird size: small
Egg colour: tinted/light brown
Egg size: extra small
Price: $14 per chick 
 

Belgian Bearded  d'Uccle - Mille Fleur

 

I don't think there is a more eye catching chicken available in the world. With their outstanding mahogany colouring and each feather tipped in black and white, these bantams have all the trim: beard and muff, vulture hocks and extremely feathered feet. They also have the perfect personality, sweet, friendly and curious which makes them ideal as pets. click here for more info

Temperament: friendly, inquisitive, personality plus
Bird size: small
Egg colour: tinted/light brown
Egg size: small
Price: $14 per chick
  

SilverPartridge/BBS* Silkies

Who can resist these fluffy pompoms of a chicken. Silkies are a large bantam, with fluffy feathers that look like chick down, black skin, blue earlobes and five toes along with fluffy feet. They are very mellow and friendly which make them great pets.  

*BBS refers to the colour and is often called Blue but BBS is more accurate because blue colour chickens when bred to each other produce blue, black and splash coloured offspring.

 

Temperament: quiet, docile
Bird size: small (large for a bantam)
