Not sure which breed to choose? Love surprises? This Special is for you!

You get our choice of breeds from the ones listed below except Silkies. This makes it easier for us as we don't have to worry about precisely hatching exact numbers of specific breeds and you get a bargain on the price. These are all healthy, strong chicks and when you order four or more we will include at least two different breeds in your order.

If you need specific breeds please order by the breed, there is no choice in this mix.

3 Ameraucana Not Available except crossed with BCM to give F1 Olive Eggs

4 Mottled Orpington

5 Chocolate Chocolates

6 Black Copper Marans

7 Plum Black Copper Marans

 

Black Copper Marans are famous for  their dark brown eggs. We were breeding some of the darkest egg laying hens in Canada as you can see by the eggs below and so we're thrilled to have our line back again. These have been a favourite of ours and we are looking forward to seeing just how dark the eggs can be.

Temperament:  Active, easy to handle
Bird Size:  Large
Egg Colour:  Dark red/brown
Egg Size:  Extra large - Jumbo
Price:  $18

 

 

 

 

Plum Black Copper Marans

These Black Copper Marans eggs have a white bloom over the very dark colour that gives a purple look to the egg. It's a much sought after colour and more known to be laid by the Croad Langshan. When wet, the white bloom is invisible but when the egg dries it reappears.

I had one hen many years ago who laid eggs like this and have always kept a hen just because it is such a unique looking egg. Not all the eggs laid by a hen will have this bloom and while there is some inheritance of it, there are no guarantees that chicks hatched will lay plum coloured eggs. They are available in very limited supply as we only get them occasionally.

Temperament:  Active, easy to handle
Bird Size:  Large
Egg Colour:  Plum and/or Red-Brown
Egg Size:  Extra large - Jumbo
Price:  $18

 

 

Dark Olive Eggers These are chickens with a high percentage of Black Copper Marans (BCM) and a little bit of Ameraucana in them.

It's a fabulous combination that gives a very dark brown egg which is quite different from the reddish, terracotta colour of the pure BCM. These beauties are head turners.

The chickens look like a BCM but may have an Ameraucana comb. 

Temperament:  Active, easy to handle
Bird Size:  Large
Egg Colour:  Dark red/brown
Egg Size:  Extra large - Jumbo
Price:  $18

 

 

F1 Olive Eggers! The chicks will be 50% Black Copper Marans and 50% Ameraucana. The offspring are generally black and lay beautiful coloured eggs in shades of olive green. They will spice up any egg carton.

Temperament:  Active, easy to handle
Bird Size:  Large
Egg Colour:  Olive Green
Egg Size:  Large - Extra Large
Price:  $16

 

 

Silver Laced Wyandottes are one of the showiest chickens around with their black laced white feathers. We are excited to have new stock who's parents were imported from the US. They are still young in these photos and will look even better as they mature. They are a eye catching birds and pleasant to have around. This line sometimes produces standard combs.

Temperament:  Active, easy to handle
Bird Size:  Large
Egg Colour:  Light brown
Egg Size:  Large
Price:  $18

 

 

English Mottled Orpington
Chocolate and Black

These beautiful, huge chickens are very mellow. Their colour changes each time they moult and they get more white speckles every year.

These are very large chickens and they look even bigger because of their fluffy feathers.

They are slow maturing and mellow.

Temperament:  Mellow
Bird Size:  Very Large
Egg Colour:  Light brown
Egg Size:  Large
Price:  $18

 

 

 

Chocolate Chocolates, these are a cross between a Black Copper Marans and Chocolate Mottled Orpington. We accidentally ended up with four Chocolate hens from this breeding and just adore the colour, personality and size so we decided to make more. They lay a larger and slightly darker egg than the pure Orpingtons.

We'll be working towards a mottled chocolate coloured chicken that lays Marans coloured eggs.

Temperament:  Mellow
Bird Size:  Very Large
Egg Colour:  Brown
Egg Size:  Extra Large
Price:  $16

 

 

 

Bearded Silkies!!! Adorable little puffs of chickens. They are silly, docile characters that lay all winter which has earned them a spot in our small collection of breeds.

We have a mixed colour flock with a Splash rooster over Splash, Paint, Silver Partridge and Black hens. They are bearded with a generous top floof.

Temperament:  Very docile
Bird Size:  Small
Egg Colour:  White/off white
Egg Size:  Small
Price:  $18 each
