Welcome to my BREEDS Page


Breeding pen with hatching eggs available: If you see something you want just PM me and I will let you know what is available.


Blue/Black Copper Marans Pen - Black Copper Marans with 7+ Blue, Black and Splash Copper Hens.







Barred Rock Pen - Good Shepard Barred Rock Roo with Blue Barred Pullets and Hens 50/50 Blue and Black Barred Rocks.


He I MUCH Bigger Now



2nd Generation Blue Barred Pullets (I have 3rd and 4th generations growing out now AND new GSBR roos and pullets)



Spring of 2014 - New Lavenders growing out NOW from Paul Smith along with Blacks.   I have a few chicks splits from my birds and some lavs.  I also Have my Shaffer Roo still.  REBUILDING my flock of Lavenders this year, Maybe Fall of 2015 before I have eggs.



Cuckoo and Blue Cuckoo pen - Cuckoo Roo (feathered legs) x 3 Blue Cuckoo Pullets (Feathered and Non Feathered legs)  Chicks have ALL hatched with great feathered legs and HUGE.  I have added several SOLID Black and Blue Marans (not from coppers) to improve egg color this year.  Might have eggs in the Fall of 2015.


The Roo is HUGH and so are several Pullets.








Sapphirs - Cross of a CCL roo over White Leghorns.  Chicks will be white with black spots.   ALL the chicks from the CCL roo are Barred.  They are not sexlinked and they may or may not have a crest.



Exchequer Leghorn Egg Improvement - FINALLY I have my Exchequer Roo over my Exchequer/WL cross hens.  I have hatched a few from these girls and I am getting BLUE Exchequers.  Very pretty birds.  This combo will produce half white chicks and half Exchequers (maybe a blue too) I do have some Exchequer Pullets growing out from this cross.  They will soon be in the breeding pen for MORE Exchequers.  Egg production and size was the reason for the cross but a side benefit is HEARTIER CHICKS.


I have gotten some really unique color birds since crossing with the WL. 




White Leghorns - I still have WL just not a breeding pen right now.  Currently breeding Exchequers.




LF Chocolate /Black/Blue and MAUVE Orpingtons - I finally have a breeding pen with 2 mauve, 1 blue, 1 black and 2 choc pullets covered by a choc split and choc rooster.

Silver Penciled Wyadotte Bantams - From Jerry Foley  LAYING like CRAZY

Crested Cream Legbars are Laying but I am still hatching for me right now!

Silkies - White with BBS, Partridge and Blue Partridge, Buff and Porcelain,  Paint whites and blacks 2 are show girls.  Plenty of eggs from the partridge and some from the white and BBS.  Others I am working to build up. 


Just to clarify..... BLRW were purchased from Jerry Foley and were HIS Breeding Pairs he mated these birds up, not me cool.png These Birds are DIRECT From Jerry Foley and not a cross breed from 2 or 3 generations back.


SLW might be selling the SLW



BLRW - I still have this Roo from Foley and have him with pullets he sired.  I also have 2 other Foley Roos 1 Blue and 1 Black.  I will have more pullets for these roos come spring.



SOLID Blue and Black Plymouth Rocks I have Blue and Black Rocks YEAH!!!  been wanting them since i got in chickens!  I have a couple of roos I am going to try I don't have a SOLID roo but I have a Silver with one copy of silver and a Single barred blue.   Soon to be set up. 


Several other projects and new breeds coming in the spring.   Lavender Copper Marans are Laying and are being tested now!.  MFL are growing out and should be laying in a few months.  New Batch of Choc Wyandottes growing out soon to be laying.  SPPR and Partridge Rocks growing out and soon to lay.   Project of BLUE Laced Silver Wyandottes.... yes you read that right.  Several other projects are in the works but might take a few more generations to get them right.

I'm going to be watching for the blue wheatens!
Are your amercaucanas standard or bantam?
Standard.... sorry I didn't see that.
Hi, I found some pics...
Is your SLW and your BLRW LF?
Can you please let me know when you have eggs for sale if they are LF?
I am sorry, I am not getting updates that there have been posts here..... ALL my birds are LF except the SP Wyandottes. Keep an eye out on the BST section. They are molting so it may be a few more months. I have some orders to fill and I need more pullets to grow out for me LOL. Might be close to summer.
good looking BLRW
I saw an add of yours on Craigslist and it said you have German New Hampshire crosses. Do you have any full breeds of these?
