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

Bird size: large

Egg colour: dark brown speckled

Egg size: large/extra large
Price: $14 per chick $7 egg
 
 

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 $8 egg

The 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: extra large
Price: $12 per chick $6 per egg

 

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: $12 per chick $7 per egg

Bantam Barred Rock

 

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

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
