We want to ensure that we get your order shipped as soon as possible, so we have temporarily increased our minimum chick and bantam quantity per breed and sex to 5. Our minimum per order is still 15 chicks and 20 bantams.


  • The Ancona is an old Italian breed that is known for its ability to lay lots of white shelled eggs. They are a light weight breed that can have either a single or rose comb. The males develop long flowing tail feathers that make them especially eye catching. The plumage is black with white-tipped feathers, this is known as mottling. With each molt, birds tend to get whiter. They have an active temperament and are great foragers, and thanks to their smaller size they eat less than larger breeds. Anconas provide a wonderful combination of eye-catching plumage color, long flowing tails, and high egg production, all while being very feed efficient. Approx. 280 eggs/year| Egg color: White | Mature Weight: Male: 6lbs. Female: 4.5 | Single Comb
