Andalusians
These beautiful blue fowl originated in Andalusia, a province of Spain, but have long been known in England and the United States. They are magnificent to look at with their graceful, stately carriage and delicately blue-laced plumage; and this marks them as an especially fine breed for exhibition.

Modern Games
Modern Games were developed from the Old English and have an extremely high station with a rather peculiar style and carriage as a result.

Blue Laced Red Wyandotte
The original development of these came from crossing Silver Laced and Golden Laced varieties of Wyandotte's. After much work the Blue Laced Red was developed from this cross.

Phoenix
These unusually handsome in color and combinations of silver and black and tails are striking although of more ordinary length.

Buttercups
The golden color and cup-shaped comb are the basis for the very descriptive name. The comb is a cupshaped crown with a complete circle of medium sized regular points. The male and female do not look alike in coloring.

Red Caps
This Old English Breed with reddish brown feathers tipped with black spangles has a large rose comb covered with prominent points. They are white skinned & lay tinted eggs.

Dominiques

Referred to as a "Dominiker". They have rose combs, medium sized bodies, prominent tails, and black and white barred plumage.


Silver Leghorns
This rare and beautiful variety has especially handsome plumage. The males are a combination of silvery white and lustrous greenish black. The females are quite different with silvery gray neck, back and wings, and beautiful salmon shading in the breast. They are good layers of white eggs and very vigorous, quick, and alert.

Dorkings
This is a very old breed known even to the ancient Romans and introduced by them to Britain. Characteristics are the color combination of silvery white and black for males and white and ashy gray for females. Both sexes have a 5th toe, and a long body on short legs.

Silver Penciled Rocks
These rare and beautiful birds are highly prized for exhibition purposes and for their valuable plumage which is ideal for fly tying.

Egyptian Fayoumis
These small, active, lovely chickens have been raised along the Nile River in Egypt for centuries, and even though quite common there, are practically unknown in this country.

Sumatras
This breed came from the island of Sumatra in far off southeast Asia. It is a graceful, Iongtailed fowl with lustrous greenish-black plumage throughout, small comb and wattles, very rare and beautiful.

Golden Campines
This is a very old and rare breed which originated in Belgium. Golden Campines feature a beautiful combination of lustrous black and golden bay to make the distinctive barred feather pattern.

White Laced Red Cornish
The ideal plumage pattern in which each feather is a rich dark red narrowly laced with white is very difficult to achieve but tremendously impressive in those individuals which are marked that way.

Golden Laced Wyandottes
This variety is a beautiful combination of rich golden bay laced with lustrous greenish black. The general feather pattern is very similar to the Silver Laced Wyandottes.

White Faced Black Spanish

In general carriage the Spanish are graceful and stylish. The rich glossy black plumage, the large red comb, and the long pendulous white face and ear lobes present a striking and different appearance.

 


Golden Penciled Hamburgs
This is an absolutely beautiful variety of the Hamburgs; having finely penciled plumage of black barring on reddish base color, leaden blue shanks and toes, and a neat pointed rose comb.

Lakenvelders
They are quite small when mature, 3 to 4 Ibs., and very quick and active, foraging widely if allowed to run. The skin is white and the breast unusually plump and round, almost like wild game birds.

Marans

We carry the Cuckoo variety of Maran which resembles the Barred Rock in color by displaying feathers which are all crossed throughout with irregular dark and light slate colored bars. Maran's lay the darkest eggs of any breed we carry and are a nice dual purpose bird for both eggs and meat.
