    Hello, does anybody know where to buy hatching Bresse Gauloise eggs or baby chicks in USA?

    Greenfire Farms has successfully imported Bresse chickens, but we haven't yet established a date when we will release them for sale. They are an interesting breed, and we look forward to working with them.

    There was another thread about this, in which I talked about an agricultural tour I participated in in France where I toured a couple of farms that raised Bresse Gauloise chickens. Really I believe it is the WAY they raise them and not so much the breed that makes the BG special.

    Here's a brief video of blue Bresse for those who are interested in this breed.
