Black Copper Marans
|Fall 2018 Eggs
available will be listed on our facebook page only, we're not taking
orders for them.
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
|Swedish Flower Hen
Fall 2018 available in limited numbers
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
Black, Splash) Breda
|Fall 2018 -
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
Belgian Bearded d'Uccle - Mille Fleur
|Fall 2018 not
available until 2019
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
|Fall 2018 -
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
