Breda Fowl / Black Copper Marans / Swedish Flower // Mille Fleur d'Uccle / Silkie


Standard/Large Fowl (Bantams and Specials below)

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

Temperament: active, easy to handle
Bird size: large

Egg colour: dark brown speckled

Egg size: large/extra large
Price: $12 per chick $6 per egg

Swedish Flower Hen


Swedish Flower Hen is the name of this beautiful and versatile breed and refers to both hens and roosters. They are a medium sized bird and good layers of large  to extra large eggs. They are great foragers and the last into the coop at night.

I love them for their friendliness and confidence, they  are always the first to come over and see what I'm doing and if I need any help. click here for more info

Temperament: active, friendly, easy to handle
Bird size: Medium
Egg colour: light brown
Egg size: extra large
Price: $12 per chick $6 per egg


BBS* (Blue, Black, Splash) Breda Fowl


I saw a few pictures of these birds and immediately fell in love with them. They are the reason I have all these other rare and hard to find breeds because I had to have them shipped from across Canada and that opened up all of Canada to me. They are extremely rare in Canada.

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
Egg colour: white/tinted
Egg size: medium
Price: $12 per chick $6 eggs



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 (off white)
Egg size: small
Price: $14 per chick $7 per egg
Very limited availability


Paint 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. click here for more info

Temperament: quiet, docile
Bird size: small (large for a bantam)
Egg colour: tinted (off white)

NOTE: If you are going to keep them all together you will need lots of space or separate runs as the Layer Specials will pick on the Bantam/Breda Specials. 

Layer Special (Standard size)

Our choice of purebred chicks from our Standard (full sized) chickens, may include Black Copper Marans and Swedish Flower Hens.
