Our Rare Breeds

In January of 2016 we became NPIP certified (CA-448) which means all of our birds are tested free of diseases twice a year to insure that you are getting the healthiest new flock members possible. Participating in the NPIP program allows us to ship over state lines. We ship our hatching eggs, chicks and adult birds all over the United States.

Our small scale hatchery is currently producing the best specimens of rare breed chickens available and will continue to do from February until July when we close down our incubators for the year. If you are a previous customer of ours you can expect the same excellent quality birds and if you are a new customer of ours, welcome to the flock!
