Barred Rock

Starting at: $2.76
First avail: Jan 27, 2021

Plymouth Rocks are as beautiful and productive as they are easy to care for. In 1620 a travel weary band of pilgrims set foot on Plymouth Rock. Years later an ideal backyard chicken breed was named in honor of this famous site. They link the flock owner with American history while yielding abundant eggs and tasty meat. In bygone days when nearly every farm had a chicken flock the utility and beauty of these birds made them the breed of choice. Few birds are as stunningly real as a Plymouth Rock strolling across a summer lawn. With a New England heritage, they don't let January's blizzards interrupt laying.

Rudd Ranger™

Starting at: $3.42
First avail: Jan 27, 2021

We’re so proud of our meat birds here at Hoover’s that we just had to name one after our little town of Rudd, Iowa. This "haus" loves to free range and finishes out slower than the Cornish Cross Broiler, but the wait is worth it! The Rudd Ranger™ is a versatile bird that can be raised in more confined areas or in free-range environments but prefers the latter. Just like our wonderful Rudd residents, these birds are docile and get along with most other breeds. They have red plumage with dark tail and wing feathers. When dressed, the Rudd Ranger’s™ body is more proportional compared to a broiler, making the dark meat almost equal the breast meat. MATURE WT: MALE 11 LBS. FEMALE 8 LBS.

Black Australorp

Starting at: $2.76
First avail: Jan 27, 2021

The Australorp, an Australian breed, was selected for its high egg production, and was developed primarily from Black Orpingtons that were exported from England in the 1890s to early 1900. Australian breeders selected these large Black Orpingtons because of their efficient egg production and Orpington shape. Today, the Australorp is still a favorite egg producer in small and backyard flocks. Despite their record-breaking egg production, they are still considered a dual-purpose breed that grows at a good rate and has a well-fleshed carcass. The plumage is pure black with an intense beetle-green sheen that is breathtaking when seen in the sunlight. Their legs and toes are also black while the bottoms of the feet are white. APPROX. 250 LARGE EGGS/YEAR | EGG COLOR: BROWN | MATURE WT: MALE 8 LBS. FEMALE 6.5 LBS.
