These are one of the snappiest, most alert breeds on the poultry list. Of rather small size, with light but sweeping, graceful outlines, they are elegant and beautiful. They have a kind of bright cheerfulness about them when foraging over open range and they love this kind of situation. Their origin goes back beyond the memory of man in both England and Holland and they were such prolific layers of white eggs that a common name for them was "the Dutch Everyday Layer." Although egg size is medium they are small eaters and cost less to keep than most breeds. The lustrous greenish black spangles on silvery white plumage give them a perky polkadot look. With neat rose combs, white ear lobes, leaden blue shanks and toes, these are excellent small birds for both beauty and utility. Baby chicks are a silver gray with parallel dark and light stripes on the back.

Good flyersSmall birds. They forage well and they can fly far for chickens!
never againThese were some of the worst hens I ever had. They were flighty and were fly up into the tree and eat out of the bird feeder, and taught everyone else how to do that. One of these ran off, was gone, and came back with a whole brood of chicks all the same. She refused to come back in the coop with them, they were all killed, and so was she.
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.
