8+ Swedish Isbar (Silverudd's Blues) eggs - I currently get 6- 8 eggs daily from my from my mixed import lines group. I have a GFF 2nd import black roo over 4 black hens (2 are mixed generation, one second and one first) 3 blue hens and two splash hens. (I have five different purchases of Isbars from GFF and some from KYtinpusher to get this flock) Fertility has been excellent & the girls have been laying well. I have loved these birds so much! They are outside rain, snow, sleet or shine. They are wonderful foragers and fliers! Starting bid $10.
Poor roo got some frostbite on his tips...but he is still a handsome boy! Yes, we get some wind out here....
4/4- Four Isbar eggs from the group above and four eggs from the GFF Marsh Daisies.
Taken from Greenfire:
The fanciful name of the Marsh Daisy belies its practical and sturdy nature. In the 19th Century this breed originated in the wet meadows of Lancashire, England, and is known for its survival skills in a free-range environment. White Leghorns, Hamburgs, Sicilian Buttercups, Indian Games, and Malays all contributed DNA to this handsome chicken breed. The Marsh Daisy’s most prominent feature is its rose comb. The breed was first officially recognized in the UK in 1913, and after World War II the breed all but became extinct. In the 1970s a flock was assembled from remnant groups of birds. While the breed scarcely avoided sliding into oblivion, even today it is listed as endangered by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust in the United Kingdom.
We have found Marsh Daisies to be productive and useful. Historical records indicate Marsh Daisy hens frequently laid more than 200 large cream colored eggs each year. There are five color varieties of this breed, and Greenfire Farms has imported both brown and black varieties of marsh daisies. Currently, Greenfire Farms is hatching only the brown variety.
The breed standard for Marsh Daisies calls for willow green legs, but we find blue legs sometime cropping up in the birds we raise. We do, however, often see willow green coloring in the legs, and in our breeding program we are selecting for this trait. However, we cannot guarantee adult leg color in the chicks we sell. If the idea of owning a high-producing, ultra-rare egg laying breed appeals to you, it would be difficult to find a better match than the stunningly beautiful Marsh Daisy.
