Homesteaders rejoice! We now have the perfect breed for you. Meet the German Bielefelder, our answer to the question “If I can only have one breed of chicken on my farm what should it be?”
Curious, friendly, safe around children 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.
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. They are an absolute new favorite of ours and we know they will soon be a favorite of yours as well!
