This year we added Serama's   We’ve only been able to hatch just a precious few of these so they will be going to someone special. Please contact us regarding breeds that we are accepting pre-orders on. We’ve also added a Hatcher this year so we can keep up with demand. This year we also traveled a bit to increase our Copper Maran line, we added 7 chicks from Mashburn Marans in Leoma, TN.  His line is award-winning so we will incorporate his line into ours next spring.

Black, Blue, and Splash Copper Marans- $10 

Accepting Pre-orders for 2021

​

​Lavender Americaunas- $25  - Almost 3 months old

This line came from "Once In A Blue Moon Farm" and we have raised them from chicks last spring.  They lay a beautiful light blue egg.

​

Olive Eggers- $20 - Almost 3 months old

These are a cross between the two breeds listed above and these ladies lay green eggs.  This is our second year for these chickens- we cross the Lavender Americana with the Copper Maran Rooster and one Copper Maran with the Lavender rooster. First-year Olive Eggers are called F-1 chicks, they lay a medium green egg.  We have bred these girls back to both a lavender rooster and a Maran Rooster.  The F-2 chicks that come from the Olive Egger and the Lavender Americanas lay a light green egg (peppermint).  The F-2 chicks that come from the Olive Egger and the Maran Rooster lay a dark green egg (Dark Olive).

​

Ayam Cemanis- (all straight run chickens- not sexed): $20

* Accepting Pre-orders for 2021

This is our third year of improving the line of our Ayam Cemanis- we introduced new roosters into the line- we bought them from a very well known Hatchery called Green Fire Farms- last year we raised them all and kept the best rooster to be our dad for this year's chicks.  Please remember this breed is very rare in the U.S. and difficult to find good quality- all black lines. 

​

Chicks are selling quickly this year. Check back with us

in the fall to see if we will have any laying hens for sale.

​

All purebred chicks are straight runs- not sex- you will get some roosters, but we incubate at lower temperatures than 99.5 degrees- there is some research saying you get a higher hatch rate for hens in cooler incubators. 

We love to hatch out exotic baby chicks.  It's something special

to take cold eggs, nurture them, and bring them to life!  We use

a top of the line incubator that digitally controls temperature and humidity for a high hatch rate.  We also installed an automatic humidifier system.  New chicks are available from March to November. We may have chicks that are weeks old, or even a month or two... but not always- so call ahead.

​

Occasionally, one of our girls will get broody and just start sitting on a clutch of eggs!!  We think this is a natural instinct and it makes the broody mama happy, so we let her hatch these naturally.  We are tracking "natural hatched" chickens separately from "incubator" chickens just to see which method is better.  For their safety, and the safety of the flock, we keep them separated from the incubator eggs/chicks.  We will always tell you how the chicks were hatched, and you will get to choose between "natural hatched" chicks (if available) and "incubator chicks".

​

Roosters:

If you have an NPIP certified farm, we would be happy to trade breeding stock roosters 1 for 1 so that we can both maintain clean, diverse bloodlines. Please call and we can work together.

If you are not NPIP certified, we give away our roosters as long as you can promise to love them and keep them humanely (no chicken fighting, etc.) Roosters are great protectors for your flock, if you live where you can have a rooster, you should have one- especially if there are predators in your area.  Call for availability.
