    If you appreciate rare breed poultry, this is one of the rarest of the rare.
    Parents are show birds. Very high fertility rate.
    The all white birds are showable too and they may, on occassion throw an all white chick, I have three white starts.
    I have more pics if you would like to see more!


    ETA: As soon as the weather warms, slightly, (it is currently very cold here in NW Iowa), I will also be offering nearly year old pairs for sale at auction in several places. These birds will not be cheap, due to the investment I have in them, but they will be excellent quality and good breeding stock.

    Quote:These are the current young birds, the whites in this pic are Delawares not Orloffs.

    What a cool breed. Orloffs have always been one of those breeds I would love to see more of, I have to say that they appeal to me, but our Nankins come first for chicken breeds, if we are going to have chickens...as my wife says, you only need one breed. I don't know if she remembers the Ameraucanas when she is constantly reminding me of this. But they look great...keep up the good work!

    This is the two parent birds. (Every night, just before dark, she clays down between his legs then when it's dark he lays down next to her).

    It's hard to get a good shot with a flash, it bounces off the white.
