    Order your chicks now to have layers by spring! I will hatch chicks to order for local pick-up only - no shipping. I am located in Northern KY, not far from Cincinnati, Louisville or Lexington. I require a 25% deposit, fully refundable only if I am not able to deliver as promised. KY law requires a 6 chick minimum, but you can mix and match. All chicks are straight run. Prices are as follows:

    Isbars - $20/chick, $110/6, $200/12

    Swedish Flower Hens - $12/chick, $65/6, $120/12

    Svart Höna - $65/chick, $375/6, $650/12 (very limited availability)

    Black Ameraucanas - $10/chick, $55/6, $100/12

    Barnyard Mix - $3/chick, $16/6, $30/12


    About my flocks:

    Isbars - I have a group of all 1st import line with a splash and 2 blue hens from one breeder, a black hen from a different breeder and a blue roo from a third breeder for diversity. I have had excellent hatch rates and vitality with the chicks from this group. I also have a group that are a combination of chicks from my 1st group and GFF's 2nd import line. I did get a brown egg laying pullet (sent to a good home to be a layer hen) in with my chicks from GFF's 2nd import line and there have been several people report some odd characteristics with the 2nd import line. I have kept the best of what I received, but this line may take more work to get consistent stock. However, the added genetic diversity is worth it, IMO. The album of my 1st import group (and juvenile pictures of the 2nd group) can be seen here: www.backyardchickens.com/g/a/6839186/isbars/ Egg colors can be seen here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/g/a/6691915/egg-colors/

    Swedish Flower Hens - I currently have 16 hens/pullets covered by 5 cocks/cockerels. I have source these birds from 7 different breeders, including 2 cockerels from Dale Fisher's German import line, for great genetic diversity. The hens are about half crested and half uncrested. All cocks are uncrested. I do cull my breeders for visible crooked toes, split wing, comb sprigs, and other undesirable traits, but they may carry the genes that will produce them in the chicks. These characteristics are inherent in the breed and will take longer than the 5 years these birds have been in this country to remove them. The album of my birds can be seen here (pages 4-5 have the most current pictures): https://www.backyardchickens.com/g/a/6152521/swedish-flower-hens/sort/display_order/page/120

    Svart Höna - I currently have 2 trios. The first is a GFFxECF cockerel over ECF hens. The second is a GFFxECF cockerel over GFF pullets. At least one of the pullets from the second group have produced chicks with woolly (silky) plumage. This is a natural variant in the Swedish population, but I do not know how prevalent it is. It is possible that the chicks from the second trio could carry the gene for the woolly plumage. Some pictures of my SH can be seen here (the cock with the white earlobes has been replaced with the one in the picture from Aug. 20): https://www.backyardchickens.com/g/a/6888012/svart-hona/

    Black Ameraucanas - These are true Ameraucanas that have beards, muffs, and correct leg coloring. They are not from a BBS mating. They lay beautiful BLUE eggs, not green. Pictures of the cock and 2 of the girls can be seen here (Boy, I need to get more pictures of these!) : https://www.backyardchickens.com/g/a/6724428/ameraucanas/ Egg pictures can be seen here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/g/a/6691915/egg-colors/

    Barnyard Mix - I currently have an Olive Egger cock over Black Copper Marans, White Bresse, and an Easter Egger hens. Lots of egg color possibilities here. My OE cock is a big boy and can be seen here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/g/i/6261682/easter-eggers-and-olive-eggers/sort/display_order/

    When I have them available. Right now, most everybody is finishing up their molt and not laying. Hopefully they will start laying again in a couple of weeks.

    Walli,
    Have you grown out any of the silky Svart Hona? Do you have any pics of them?

    I know you said you only have straight run chicks, but I'm desperate. Do you have any sexed females or started pullets? I can't have roosters.

    I was wondering what you have available? I am interested in adding a few more chicks while mine are still young.
    Thank you

    I'm sorry, I don't have any available at the moment. Those I have growing out now are already spoken for.

    Right now I don't have anything available. I may in another month or 2, though.

    Okay, thank you. Just keep me in mind. Between my mother and I we have several pure and project groups.
