World, meet the German Bielefelder. A sweet and docile auto sexing layer of large tan eggs.
Curious, friendly, and easy on the eye these birds are autosexing so we can guarantee you female chicks. This breed lays eggs like a hybrid commercial breed (230 eggs a year) only their eggs are larger and cream. Weighty on the breast, the males make for good meat birds and end up being more tender than American Bresse. Females are slow to start laying at around 6 months of age but once they start they are steady and loyal layers.
Predator wise and smart – they are easy to train on any coop setup and know when to take cover if a bird of prey is checking them out.
