    Our Coronation Juveniles are looking great as they mature.

    Beautiful, as gorgeous as the Coronations are I don't see how they are not more popular than they are, great size bird, great size eggs and great layers.

    Most people that visit our farm have never seen or heard of them before. But people quickly fall for them. I have had great fertility rates, they are inquisitive , friendly and of course very gentle on the eye. I can only imagine that availability in the states must play some part.

    Same thoughts here, people do love them when they see them here also.

    Thought I would share a few pics. We have a trio of unrelated Greenfire Farms breeders.
