Does anyone know where can get a Kraienkoppe chicken.

Does anyone know where I can get a Kraienkoppe chicken. It's a Dutch/German chicken. I am having a hard time finding one. Any help is greatly appreciated!
The key to a happy flock is to be there for them. You have to do your job so they can do theirs. Your coop layout is also important. It doesn't have to be fancy just functional.http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/just-a-chicken-coop Is an example of it.

Quick google found this:

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

If hatchery quality will do then Ideal Poultry has both the red breasted and silver. Red breasted is a full pound heavier than silver.

Look in the standard tinted layers.

Man they are pricy!!

 

"Greenfire Farms sells only unsexed day-old chicks of this breed.  Each chick is $59.  Because these are bred in very limited numbers, availability may vary.  Shipping charges are a flat rate of $35 per chick box"

 

Ideal doesn't have price listed, wonder if they are cheaper there?

Guess it depends on your goals and your resources.

I certainly wouldn't / couldn't justify spending that kind of money on a chicken,

can buy 3 weeks worth of groceries for $60.

Depending on how long Greenfire has had their stock there could be people here that already purchased and raised them. You might have to wait until spring but could put up an add in Buy/sell/trade stating your looking for Greenfire stock eggs or chicks. That would reduce costs.

 

Barnevelders and now Kraienkoppe, you must have a strong connection to Holland ancestry.
