Queen Silvia

Queen Silvia

“ The Queen Silvia chicken was developed by Swedish geneticist Martin Silverudd to honor Sweden's longest reigning queen, Silvia. These are medium size, athletic chickens, who lay large amounts of pinkish-tan eggs. They are very curious and have to investigate any new thing in their area. The roosters are average size. They are very good foragers and fliers. They will hide eggs in out of the way...” --cree57i

Bantam Barred Rock

Bantam Barred Rock

“I purchased a dozen exhibition quality barred rock bantams from Dick Horstman in April 2016.  Almost a year old as of this writing and I'm 100% pleased.  The entirety of the remaining flock (5 hens, 1 rooster) are some of the friendliest birds I've owned.  The few I sent to other homes give similar reviews when I see them and everyone who got by extra cockerels last year are on a...” --0wen

Cinnamon Quens -- type of sex link

Great egg machines. BUT KILLERS of any chicks or other hens in the same general area or visible area. I got these a year ago and everything was great until about a month ago. They have actually jumped/flown over a 4 foot tall plus fence where I have my 8 weeks old chicks. I finally caught them and have raised the fence but NOT until they killed 50 plus chicks. And NOW that they can...

Easter Egger bantam

Easter Egger bantam

“I purchased two pullets and a cockerel from a fellow chicken lover. I don't regret it at all. These birds aren't too flighty, and always know when it's time to roost. They are great foragers, but don't destroy anything. We kept them with full sized chickens for a while, and they were totally fine. they were only pecked two or three times, but otherwise got along just fine. I have never had a...” --Minnowey

Ameri-Flower

Ameri-Flower

“I have a young Ameri-Flower rooster that I love, he is so pretty! He's extremely sweet but he hasn't hit sexual maturity yet so things could change. He looks like a splash americauna but is crested and bearded, he has become my favorite part of the flock- I just love watching him. He has a lot of spunk/personality, I'm really hoping he continues this docile personality to adulthood.  ” --melishkia

Red Cross

“These hens are amazing! They all give me an egg a day, and they are also good foragers. I have found feed consumption goes down dramatically when they have access to grass. They are very docile to both me and the other hens. I have not even seen them peck each other once! Out of 4 hens, only one has gone broody since I got them (which could be good or bad). Overall, I would highly recommend...” --Chicken999

Giro Gamefowl

Giro Gamefowl

“ We were given a fighting cock and the only reason we took him was he was so bedraggled and pitiful looking.  He, George, was the gentlest rooster we have ever had.  When he would find bugs the chicks would gather around and he never pecked at or chased them away.  All our chickens are pets and he took very well to being a pet.  We lost him when a coyote came snooping...” --slipshift
