White Leghorn

Starting at: $2.54
First avail: Dec 18, 2019

Years ago a small amazingly productive chicken breed was imported from Italy through the port of Livorno. "Leghorn" became the Anglicized word for that port and the breed. Supermarket eggs are almost always laid by White Leghorns or hybrids developed from them. Hens lay about 290 eggs every year while eating less feed than most other breeds. APPROX. 290 LARGE EGGS/YEAR | EGG COLOR: WHITE | MATURE WT: MALE 4 LBS. FEMALE 3.5 LBS.

Ancona -NEW!

Starting at: $3.76
First avail: Jan 22, 2020

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

Blue Andalusian

Starting at: $4.38
First avail: Jan 15, 2020

The original ancestors of the Andalusian came from Spain, but British poultry fanciers are believed to be the ones to really perfect the breed. The Andalusian is most well-known for its striking blue plumage. The ground color of the Andalusian is slate blue with each feather being laced with darker blue. Their large red combs and wattles and white earlobes truly make a stunning and beautiful bird. They have an active disposition and are known to be excellent foragers. The males will develop a large, full tail at maturity along with long flowing saddle and hackle feathers. They are very prolific egg layers and, like all Mediterranean breeds, can handle hot temperatures well. This breed hatches black, blue, and splash coloring; there is no guarantee what color you will receive. APPROX. 280 MEDIUM EGGS/YEAR | EGG COLOR: WHITE | MATURE WT: MALE 7 LBS. FEMALE 5.5 LBS

Brown Leghorn

Starting at: $2.66
First avail: Jan 15, 2020

Brown Leghorns share the productive traits and nervous personality of their whit cousins but have slightly larger bodies clothed in one of the most beautiful feather patterns of any white egg laying breed. Always alert, Brown Leghorns are athletic, excitable, noisy and often better able to avoid predators than slower breeds. APPROX. 280 LARGE EGGS/YEAR | EGG COLOR: WHITE | MATURE WT: MALE 4.5 LBS. FEMALE 4 LBS

California White

Starting at: $2.66
First avail: Jan 14, 2020

California White hybrids look almost exactly like the White Leghorns they were developed from but are slightly larger and have a few black spots on their white feathers. California Whites are quiet, calm and one of the best white egg layers for backyard flocks. Adding a few California Whites to a flock of brown egg layers adds color diversity to the egg carton. APPROX. 290 LARGE EGGS/YEAR | EGG COLOR: WHITE | MATURE WT: MALE 4.5 LBS. FEMALE 4 LBS.

Silver Lakenvelder

Starting at: $2.95
First avail: Jan 28, 2020

The Lakenvelder is an old German breed that is famous for its unique color pattern. The neck, saddle, and tail feathers of the Lakenvelder are black, while the wings, back, and breast are white. The pattern gives them a belted look similar to Dutch Belted cattle and Hampshire hogs. The sharp contrast of black and white feathers makes them an interesting bird to have and admire. In addition to their unique color, they are also very good egg layers. They are a lightweight active breed that is well adapted to free-ranging. The Lakenvelder is a unique and rare breed that would add interest to any flock, all while producing lots of eggs for the table. APPROX. 280 MEDIUM EGGS/YEAR | EGG COLOR: WHITE | MATURE WT: MALE 5 LBS. FEMALE 4 LBS.
