2017 Chickens

Breda Fowl / Black Copper Marans / Swedish Flower / Olive Eggers // Mille Fleur d'Uccle / Silkie / Bantam Sultan 


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


Blue* 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

Temperament: quiet, docile, gentle
Bird size: Medium
Egg colour: white/tinted
Egg size: medium
Price: $15 per chick eggs not available
Limited availability


Olive Eggers

Olive Eggers are a cross between Ameraucana (blue egg) and Black Copper Marans (dark brown egg) and as their name implies they lay an olive coloured egg. Though not a heritage breed, they are worth having in the flock for their colourful contributions to the egg carton and friendly, outgoing personalities. They are very good layers too. click here for more info


Temperament: friendly, active, outgoing
Bird size: medium/large
Egg colour: olive
Egg size: large/extra large
Price: $9 per chick $5 per egg


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: $12 per chick $6 per egg


Paint and Blue 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)
Egg Size: small
Price: $14 per chick $8 per egg

Bantam Sultan

Very sweet and unique, bantam Sultans are also very rare. They are a gentle little chicken and lots of fun to watch as they go about their business. Not great layers they are primarily kept for their beauty. click here for more info

Bird size: small (bantam)
Egg colour: white/tinted

Not sure which breed to choose?
Love being surprised?

Our Hatch Day Special is for you!

We will send you our choice of breeds from the ones listed above. 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. We guarantee a minimum of two different breeds in each order.

With this special there is no choice on the breed you receive.


Layer Special (Standard size)

$9 each chick

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

$9 each chicks

Our choice of purebred chicks from our Bantam chickens and Breda Fowl (standard size), may include Mille Fleur d'Uccle, Sultan, Paint and Blue Silkies and Breda Fowl. Breda Fowl are included here because they are so gentle they are better with the bantams.
*About the Blue colour in poultry: It does not breed true, so breeding two blue birds will give you blue, black and splash colours. Splash is predominantly white with black or grey feathers scattered throughout their body.
