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: $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
Egg colour: white or cream
Egg size: small/medium
Price: $17 per chick $9 egg

Blue Laced Red Wyandotte

 

Beautiful, huge chickens, with perfect lacing, each red feather is outlined in white (splash, blue or black) and showing the correct Wyandotte type, wide, rounded and compact. They are friendly, active and outgoing, making them excellent for free ranging and foraging. Chicks are chipmunk striped. click here for more info

Temperament: active, friendly, easy to handle
Bird size: Medium
Egg colour: light brown
Egg size: extra large
Price: $14 per chick $7 per egg

Silver Laced Wyandotte

 

 

Eye catching with their black and white laced feathers, they are a rare but popular variety of Wyandotte. Smaller than our line of Blue Laced Red Wyandotte, they have the same friendly, outgoing and active personality. click here for more info

Temperament: active, friendly, easy to handle
Bird size: Medium
Egg colour: light brown
Egg size: extra large
Price: $14 per chick $7 per egg

 

The Blues

 

Want to add some colour to your egg basket? These are a mixed pen of pure heritage breeds that lay blue and green eggs. These are all medium sized chickens, friendly, active and perfect for adding some eye catching variety to your egg carton. We have a rumpless Araucana rooster over two Araucana, three Ameraucana, one Cream Legbar and two olive egger (Ameraucana x Black Copper Marans) hens. Chicks will be a mix of rumpless and tailed. click here for more info

Temperament: active, friendly, easy to handle
Bird size: Medium
Egg colour: light brown

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
Egg colour: white/tinted
Egg size: medium
Price: $14 per chick $7 per egg

 

Bantams

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
 

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)
