Like all of the Minorcas these have long, strong bodies well set up on firm muscular legs. The large red combs are very typical and in the hens will fall to one side almost covering one eye. The hens lay good sized white eggs and are nonsetters. Plumage is a rich golden buff color and shanks and toes are a pinkish white.
As a reminder, to help ensure a safe arrival to you, the minimum number of chicks for each order prior to April 1st is 25. On and after April 1st, the minimum number of chicks required is 15. You can mix and match any type of baby chick in your order to reach the applicable chick minimum order. If ordering any bantams, we require a minimum of 15 bantams per order.

Customer Product Reviews
I want to thank you for the beautiful Buff Minorca pullets that I received along with my commercial egg layers this past July. My two girls are tall and graceful. They enjoy foraging around the yard and visitors to the farm often compliment on their beauty. Craig
Dear Folks, I purchased 12 of these Golden beauties back in June of this year. As of 2 weeks ago the eggs are really starting to pile in, chalk white and quite tasty. The hens are becoming quite the attraction to the roosters and the roosters are strutting around very proud and announcing their voice to the world. They have far surpassed my expectations for both a living science project for my son and a nice little source of eggs for everyone to enjoy. Keep this breed alive and active. Best Regards, David
