Belgian d'Uccle

“ These chickens are so nice, and they are real lap chickens! I have one that's the bottom of the pecking order and whenever she gets chased or pecked she'll come running to me!

Blue Isbar

Blue Isbar

“Blue Isbars are a breed developed in the 50-60’s by a monk by the name of Martin  Silverudd. He wasn’t able to complete auto sexing of this color, as planned, before he died. But even without the auto sexing, this breed developed into a good and beautiful layer.  Greenfire Farm imported them in 2011 from Sweden.    Greenfire Farms first imports were reported to have immune...” --gootziecat
