I see folks wondering what the breed of their chicken/s may be... if they are a beautiful soft grey, with black legs and black beak.
Our Sapphire blues are extremely gentle, timid... but people friendly... and are heavy layers.
I have seen them referred to as:
Plymouth Blue Rock/Sapphire Gem
Ours were a local Farm Store Purchase.
Just a beautiful breed of chicken!

I know there are several birds out there looking very similar to Sapphire Gems that have different genetics and I ordered my Sapphire Gems from a hatchery so I'm trusting they are what they are supposed to be. :fl
Which are wonderful, friendly, confident, funny, and the most puppy like birds I've had yet. I've had nearly all the heritage breeds at one time or another and there are some I like much more than others, but currently I'm totally smitten with my Gems.

:welcome they are a very attractive bird. How productive are they ?
Mine started on Jan 9, about 18 weeks, with the typical smaller eggs but already I'm getting nearly full sized large eggs and I'm guessing these girls are going to easily be 5+ eggs a week layers. Or right up there with RIR, NHR, and Rocks.
