Taking black to a whole new level! The Indonesian Ayam Cemani is the crown jewel of any poultry enthusiast lucky enough to own one. Our flock has a gentile disposition that belies it's ultra exotic appearance. Our breeding flock of Ayam Cemani are completely black, black combs, waddles, right down to the toenails. We purchase stock direct from Greenfire Farms as well as other reputable NPIP breeders to assure the top quality as well as genetic diversity.
Marans - The Black Copper Marans are known for laying the darkest brown egg of any chicken in the world. They are also prized by many of the world's top chefs for exceptional flavor. (James Bond would eat no other egg) The picture to the left is a fair representation of what the birds are laying. (On average most of the chicks we hatch are Black Copper with some Blue and every now and then a Splash) These were not "cherry picked" eggs, they were just what happened to be in the basket when we went to take a picture. The hens will lay varying shades of color within a season and they tend to get lighter as the bird gets older. If you receive a lighter colored egg, you can be sure it was from an older bird that we kept because of how dark her eggs were when she was younger. She will still pass on her genetics for dark eggs even though her best days may be behind her. We have been raising this breed for many years and are constantly working to maintain and improve the quality of our birds. We recently purchased some birds from Greenfire Farms in order to keep our gene pool fresh. We are an NPIP Certified farm inspected by the state of Idaho, our birds are tested for Avian Influenza as well as Salmonella Pullorum/Typhoid and clean.
Ameraucanas - The vast majority of people who think they own Ameraucanas (not Americana) or Araucanas actually own Easter Eggers. The Ameraucana and Araucanas are true breeds, the Easter egger is not. On average, most of the chicks hatched from our eggs will be Black however we also occasionally hatch Lavender. The Ameraucana are known for laying beautiful blue (not green) colored eggs. The blue egg in the picture to the left is an egg from one of our Ameraucanas.
A British auto sexing breed that lays a large number of beautiful blue to green colored eggs! This beautiful bird is a real game changer for the small farm that wants to hatch out their own birds as males and females can be easily determined on day one. All of our flock was sourced directly from Greenfire Farm's Jill Rees line, they are the first and only legal importer of the breed.
