Exciting new breeds for next year May 9, 2012

Mystery chicken breeds at My Pet Chicken!!

2013 Mystery chicken breeds at My Pet Chicken!!

I’m so eggscited, I just can’t keep it to myself. We’re in the midst of developing some exclusive, new breeds for sale next year.

Yes, exclusive! Yes, new!

A few of the chicken fanatics (chickenatics?) that work here at My Pet Chicken have dreamed up some lovely new birds that will be hardy, gentle, and lay beautiful, saturated eggs–and plenty of them, too. (Some varieties they’ve been breeding in secret for a few years already.)

We’re also “taking under our wing” some rare breed flocks that have never been offered commercially before.  Think chocolate eggs, olive eggs, sky blue eggs; think gorgeous feather patterns; think lavender and blue.

Quick: are you leaning closer to your desk than is comfortable? Has your heart rate risen? It’s official: you’re chicken-addicted.

You’re not the only one–and though I empathize with your plight, I won’t spill the beans on these new breeds just yet.  I want to make it up to you, however. We’ll be offering lots of giveaways next year of both hatching eggs and chicks of these fabulous new breeds. And in the coming months, we’ll to post to our blog sneak-peek photos and information about these breeds, to whet your appetite. Stay tuned, because the only place under the sun to get these birds will be My Pet Chicken.

Can you guess the new rare breeds and exclusive new breeds we’ll be offering? How about suggestions? While we don’t plan on any more new flocks for 2013, there is still time to change our minds. If enough of you are clamoring for a certain couple of breeds, how could we turn you down? After all–you, wonderful customers, rule the roost. So let’s hear from you!

Deb S May 9th, 2012

I actually hatched a few bantam Americana/Silkies. I am hoping for miniature blue eggs with very motherly hens. 🙂 If I get roosters I hope the disposition of the Silkies is dominent.

Carla May 9th, 2012

I am into different colored eggs, I want a rainbow of eggs! LOL

Debbie Wines May 9th, 2012

You know I don’t know how chickens could get any better. My family thinks I’m crazy cause I’m so in love with my girls. I clean there coop every other week from head to toe visit with them several times a day and get so much joy from them. I got Eggers and Barred Rocks and Speckled Sussex last year because I didn’t want a white egg. . . Grand kids you know. They love coming over to see what is in the coop. This year I have Copper Marans more Eggers, Orpingtons and Silkies. How much better could life get. Whatever you come up with I will try. Anything Grandchildren friendly works for me.
I talk about this site and you all constantly. I was on facebook bragging and a friend of mine from down south asked me where I got my girls from. I recently started seeing pictures of Mark and April McCallister’s “girls” on facebook.
And who are they talking about now? You 🙂
The best customer service anywhere. . . .

traci May 9th, 2012

Wow! Lots of suggestions there. Keep ’em coming. I can promise you that we’ll be offering at least one of the suggestions so far…

Tracy Peters May 9th, 2012

How about Jubilee Orpingtons? Love the big bodies!

kinni May 9th, 2012

I know they aren’t egg layers, but I long for an O Shamo or Taiwan. They’re positively majestic.

Julie May 9th, 2012

Frizzled polish, more frizzled Cochins, cochin bantams, blue orpingtons

shelley in Texas May 9th, 2012

I am so excited that you will be offereing more interesting egg colors. Quite frankly, that is what I am looking for. Would the eggs of the blest bule

Mellissa May 9th, 2012

Blue Laced Red Wyandottes and Partridge Rocks, White Laced Red Cornish,and Langshans any of those (especially love the BL Red Wyandottes..so pretty!) wouls be supr cool to see on the site.

Sara May 9th, 2012

I love the colored eggs. All the chickens I picked have interesting eggs. My husbands are all prolific layers!

Michelle Lynn Benge May 9th, 2012

I love a surprise! I like em fat and fluffy with lotsa eggs!!!

Phyllis Munn Guyton May 9th, 2012

I would like to add a Frizzle to my hen family along with Blue Laced Red and Silver Laced Wyandottes. But anything you add would be great !

Kim May 9th, 2012

Nan May 9th, 2012

Can’t wait!

Christy Byron May 9th, 2012

Lavender Orps and Olive Eggers!!!!! I love the different colored egss…so pretty.

irene May 9th, 2012

Oh so exciting! When will we know??? I would like to have some Appenzeller Barthuhner 🙂
When can we order for next year????? I am addicted- my husband said I can only get 4 more next year- we currently have 17, 10 off them are chicks we got from MPC in March and they are all doing great!!!

irene May 9th, 2012

Also some Basque Hens would be great- they are similar to the swedish flower hens- lay about 220 eggs per year and are said to be friendly and very good foragers.

Kayla Rosencutter-Jones May 9th, 2012

This is for Kayla: Like your name Kayla :). Now on a serious note, you mentioned Seramas. I was also thinking of Seramas when I read your post. Very good choice. I love Seramas.

Kayla Rosencutter-Jones May 9th, 2012

I know the Serama isn’t a “new breed” chicken but if you could start raising and offering them For Sale, you would be the first commericial Hatchery within the Continental United States that offers them to your customers. Please correct me if this isn’t true. You definitly don’t keep Serama’s for the eggs they produce. They are exclusively for pets. And beautiful pets they are. Please do some research on this small Bantam and let everyone know what the owners of My Pet Chicken think of the Serama and if there is any chance at all of seeing them offered for sale through your Hatchery. Thank you.

David Masker May 9th, 2012

We have olive colored eggs.

Robin May 9th, 2012

Does this mean you won’t be offering any new breeds this year? You announced a few months ago that you were offering new ones this spring. I have been breathless waiting for Ameraucanas, Orpingtons and Marans in blue, lavender, wheaten and chocolate!
I’ve also been trying to get a black copper marans for 2 years. The first year you were out. This year I ordered early, got one in the mix of 4 I got, and she didn’t make it. My brown leghorn also turned out to be a roo.
Oh well. I guess I’ll be holding my breath for another year?!

traci May 11th, 2012

The new breeds we alluded to are being held back, actually, because the flocks are too small this year to offer commercially. We’re so sad about this! We only learned after we sent the announcement. I suppose it’s possible they’ll be available WAY later in the season, but you can rest assured that we’ll be “crowing” about this via our email newsletter, blog, facebook and twitter, so you won’t miss it!

Amanda May 9th, 2012

I love too see more bantam cochins, especially the barred cochins! I’m looking forward to seeing the new breeds!!

Cat Fox May 10th, 2012

McGraws! So, do you know what they are? They are a breed developed from the Appenzeller Spitzhauben and the Araucana. They are polka dotted like an App and lay sky blue eggs like an Araucana. Some are rumpless. Get those and you’ve got something… AND you are saving a truly amazing, rare breed.

traci May 11th, 2012

Oh my gosh! I haven’t heard of these before. One of our concerns with “rare” breeds is how we prevent them from becoming too inbred… Anyone have thoughts? Any poultry geneticist out there want to help us with this?

Gail May 10th, 2012

i would love to have showgirls be available. and as for new breeds, i would love to see a naked-neck polish or silky breed. i know not many like naked necks as much as i, but how funny to have that top hat on them:) kinda make you forget about the ugly-cuteness of turkens:) also, a white laced red or red laced wyandotte would be awesome! i love the pattern on the cornishes, but dont see it much anywhere else.

Gail May 10th, 2012

reading above mentioned, jubilee orpingtons and swedish flower? and blue partridge brahmas can have my vote too! it would be soo awesome (even if you have to limit the amount we can order at a time, like the blue laced reds you offered this year)

Karen May 10th, 2012

Cream Legbars. Sky blue eggs
Isbars. Green eggs
Jubilee Orpingtons. Oh please please 🙂
please get some Jubilees

Colleen v May 11th, 2012

Lav. D’uccle, lav orpington, lemon cuckoo orpington! So many others Oo ooo can’t wait now lol

Colleen v May 11th, 2012

Jubilees too! Can’t forget those!!

Aslan May 11th, 2012

sky blue eggs…must be ameraucanas or araucanas. i would think ameraucanas though since the araucana tufted trait is a lethal gene so they’re harder to breed. the european araucanas are cute, they look like ameraucanas and also have a crest so their head is all around puffy 🙂 (they come rumpless or with tails, they call both araucanas)

traci May 11th, 2012

Good guess, but no! 😉 We HAVE decided not to carry Araucanas, though, because of the lethal tufted gene and because their fertility and rates of egg lay are so low. We’d have to charge so much to make them viable on a large-scale commercial basis…

Carol Schanz May 11th, 2012

Lavender Orpingtons and Spangled Orpingtons

Marie K May 14th, 2012

A large bodied docile egg layer… Crossed with a silkie….the more color the better…how fun

Barnevelder May 16th, 2012

Cant wait what it looks like.. Weeee.. XD

jean chappell May 17th, 2012

Cream Legbars and Chocolate Orpingtons

Wendy May 17th, 2012

Seramas!!! Please, please, pretty please!

Cheryl Martin May 17th, 2012

Don’t know what ya’ll have in mind but my husband and I love Sultans and silkies. The APA does recognize the white sultan, however they do not recognize the Black or blue sultans. Bo and I have some beautiful black sultans and we are trying to get them better known in our area in hopes that more people will take an interest and maybe someday become a registered breed.

Janet May 17th, 2012

Eggs… it’s all about the eggs. My birds are pastured and so bantams are too much at risk. I love the blue and green eggs but I need full size hens.

Sharon Granger May 17th, 2012

Salmon Faverolles!!!!! Big, Beautiful, and simply amazing!

Prajna Faux May 17th, 2012

This is my first time with a Buff Orpington, and I have to say she is the very definition of a lap chicken at two months old! She begs to hop up on my lap and loves being carried around by my children. We keep a varied flock, so I’d love to see some different colored Orpingtons for those of us who need a sweet, docile, pet chicken who also is a good layer. So many families are beginning to start backyard flocks with just 3 or 4 hens so kid-friendly hens are a must. Being able to tell them apart at a glance is beneficial when you have kids who love to point out, “That’s MY chicken!” I think different colored Orpingtons would encourage more families to give chickens a try.

Marie Husnick May 17th, 2012

I would love to see some red, gray and tricolor Rangers. I know they are not egg layers, but they are some beautiful birds and I want some!

KATHY PACE May 17th, 2012

YOU SHOULD THINK ABOUT CARRYING BIRCHEN, AND BLUE BIRCHEN MARANS.
THEY ARE RARE AND HARD TO COME BY. YOU WOULD PROBABLY SELL OUT QUICKLY IF THE PRICE WAS REASONABLE.

Amber May 17th, 2012

Standard Ameraucanas please
Dorkings maybe

Laurie May 17th, 2012

Blue and chocolate orpingtons. I started with Buffs and they hooked me on the breed. I’ve been through three hatches of BBS Orps and of 2 1/2 dozen eggs have had 6 chicks. Two were killed by hawks, two by the neighbor dog, leaving me with two roosters. I want chicks instead of eggs. I love my BBS boys but would love to have some hens to go along with them. Jack, a black BBS too, won Best Large Fowl at our district fair last summer.

Liz May 17th, 2012

My local “chicken” store got in a silver gray chick and I immediately put in for one and had it banded. Someone sold it before I could get back to pick it up. I think it was call “selfblue”? By any chance would you have any I could purchase?

Jacob Bailey May 17th, 2012

How about Dark Brahama (large fowl and bantam), Brabanters (cream and gold) and Barred Holland? Very hard to find these, but I bet My Pet Chicken can find a nice breeder!

Nicole May 31st, 2012

Would love to see some Silver Ameraucanas, too!

john May 31st, 2012

I’d love to see Cream Legbars, Olive Eggers, and Dorkings

Karen May 31st, 2012

Cream legbars
Lavender orpingtons
Lavender Ameraucana
Jubilee Orpingtins
Mottled Java

Jeff May 31st, 2012

LA FLÈCHE LA FLÈCHE LA FLÈCHE LA FLÈCHE LA FLÈCHE AND SOME MORE LA FLÈCHE AFTER THAT MAYBE SOME MORE LA FLÈCHE THEN FOR THE BANTAM LOVERS OUT THERE HOW ABOUT SERAMA’S it’s for those who cherish little tiny chickens not much bigger than a parakeet with a bigger personality than a jersey giant ps I checked the box but I’m not to sure about the human part.

Lanna Jones May 31st, 2012

Would love to see some more variety in the Bantam Cochin color selection!

jmh May 31st, 2012

Thanks for the opportunity to request your new breeds.
We would like:
Purebreed Amerauncanas (not Easter Eggers) – lavender, buff, silver, black, & wheaten
Golden Cuckoo Marans
Chanteclers – partridge
Orpingtons – lavender, blue, chocolate

Neil May 31st, 2012

Could you breed a hen that lays a pink egg? I have hens that lay all of the othe solid color eggs. Thanks.

Dawn Bunn May 31st, 2012

Russian Orloffs =)

Buddy Carter May 31st, 2012

How about Red Dorkings and Colored or Dark Dorkings?

Cyw Iar May 31st, 2012

How ’bout Icelandics?

Dawn May 31st, 2012

Love Frizzles or bantam frizzles

Anne Norman May 31st, 2012

Icelandic
Norwegian Jaerhorn
Chamois Campine
true Auracaunas
Denizli Long Crowers

Elizabeth Bateman May 31st, 2012

New breeds are always Exciting!
Some I’ve been DYING to have but you don’t offer are the Japanese Bantams. They’re so pretty and cute!
Also Crevecour is a lovely breed with a great disposition and a little better at survival
than the top hats since they have slightly less feathering on their head.
Egyptian Fayoumi- I had a rooster who was one of the coolest birds I’ve had, but he was taken by a fox last summer.

tristan May 31st, 2012

i would love some cochins. if any one has them for sale send me an email

t.parker9710@yahoo.com

tristan May 31st, 2012

Jodi May 31st, 2012

I’d love to have Coronation Sussex

Beth Clure May 31st, 2012

Seramas.
More colors for Silkies.

julie summerhill May 31st, 2012

Dark brahmas and chocolate orpingtons,please. Thanks.

Teepov May 31st, 2012

Croad Langshans! I want those purple eggs!!

Well from this post I’m guessing Olive Eggers, maybe some Blue Ameraucanas and maybe even Araucanas are in the pipeline, as well as some Lavender Orpingtons and some more Marans breeds. I would love to see you carry Chocolate Orpingtons and maybe some Blue Copper Marans.

Danette May 31st, 2012

Dorkings please. And Blue Favrolles, actually any of the other colors of Faverolles to go with our Salmon Faverolles. 🙂

Rudy May 31st, 2012

La fleche, blue Marans, blue wyandottes.

Jennifer Wendtland May 31st, 2012

Colorful eggs please!!!

Kristin May 31st, 2012

Any color of standard Brahmas! Blue Partridge, Silver Laced, etc
Marans
I agree with a previous post, Jersey Giant x Polish would be fun.
I love my Easter Egger colors though.

Joshua May 31st, 2012

My wish list would include seramas (!) and bantam versions of barnevelder, australorp, sussex and orpington in day old chick option.

Madeline June 1st, 2012

Dorkings! I agree with the last post that bantam barnevelders, sussex and orpingtons would be fun.

Linda June 1st, 2012

Turkens please. Our turken hens we have now have great personalities and are great egg layers.

Jamie K. June 1st, 2012

Dorkings, Dark Brahmas, Langshans and anything that lays colorful eggs!

Marlesha June 2nd, 2012

Showgirls! (Silkie/naked neck cross) A showgirl that lays blue/green eggs would be even more amazing.

Sharon June 3rd, 2012

I would love to see all different colored Orps I just love the breed.

Wendy Sawyer June 3rd, 2012

I am looking for some Russian Orloffs for fun, but your website is already eye candy. I can dream of having them if nothing else. I have only seen the Orloffs offered through Welp hatcheries. I don’t want to order 25 birds and fear that their trip across the country will be too harsh on baby chicks.
Your hatchery is much closer to my home and I still have hens from your company that lay very well. If you ever decide to offer a rainbow egg layer package I will be happy to order my newer hens from you.
Thank You

Walter Radziszewski June 3rd, 2012

Naked Necks, Seramas

Shellie June 4th, 2012

I see no mention of ducks. We have cross bred pekin with khaki Campbell’s, pekin with mallard, mallard with khakis. Each hatch has produced unique colors. The pekin/ mallards and pekin/khakis produce a duck with black feathering that looks like velvet. They are gorgeous!!!!

Karen June 5th, 2012

I would love to see Cream Legbars, the hens that lay sky blue eggs. One day I would like to find a dark blue egg. Have any of your breeders been able to produce a really saturated blue egg? I agree with some of your earlier posters that a colorful egg basket is what I like best!

Karen June 5th, 2012

Would love to see Black-tailed Buff Japanese Bantams included on your list.

Austin Colter June 6th, 2012

I know these are many, but it’s a lot for you too look at! Heres my list of breeds……….Belgian Bearded de Watermael, Blue Hen of Deleware, Brakel, California Greay, Silver Campine, Catalana, Chantecler, Red Laced White Cornish, Cream Legbar, Cubalaya, Dorking, Fayoumi, Holland, Iowa Blue, Java, Kraienkoppe, La Fleche, Golden Penciled Hamburgs, Red Caps, White Faced Black Spanish, Rosecomb Brown Leghorn, Red Leghorn, Silver Leghorn, Long Crower, Manx Rumpy, Marsh Daisy, Old English Pheasant Fowl chicken, Owl Beard, Russian Orloff, and finally,…the Scotts Dumpy. I know you couldn’t possibly start flocks of all these this year, or even maybe the next few. But I will say that these are all amazing breeds, not hybrids, breeds, that are in deperate need of saving. All of these listed breeds are very useful and very interesting. Like the Long Crower, a Long Crower rooster’s crow can last as long as 25 seconds! Or the Scots Dumpy, whose legs are so short they won’t scratch up your grass! Or my personal favorite, the Owl Beard, who has the body shape and muffs of an Americauna, but has a white body and black neck and hackles, also sporting a V comb. All above are wonderful heritage or foreighn breeds that need some saving!

Chrissy June 16th, 2012

I would love Black Javas, the second oldest American breed:)

Aurelia June 17th, 2012

Any rare But creame leg bars and olive EGGERS

chubseus June 29th, 2012

I’d love to see more bantams. I’m still on the search for some Delaware bantams (that I don’t have to order 30 of, that is).

Violet June 30th, 2012

CHOCOLATE ORPINGTONS and LAVENDER ORPINGTONS are certainly on my wish list 🙂

traci July 1st, 2012

Lavender Orpingtons are available right now as started pullets! Though it’s not cheap to go this route–shipping on larger birds is through the roof–you could have them starting October… 🙂 I have one myself, and she’s gorgeous and friendly!

Aurelia July 4th, 2012

STANDERED SILKIE OLIVE EGGERS CREAM LEG BAR JAVA PLEASE JAVAS PLEASE JAVA AND ABOVE

Andrea July 30th, 2012

All those colors must be Legbars and Isbars. (Loverly!)

I am wanting some standard White Faced Black Spanish and/or La Fleche. If you have a few, I will be a test customer and write the best pro and con list ever. I’ll write it in blood, if you want. Pretty please? (Will do the same for any of the other Greenfire sorts you may consider bringing aboard.)

michelle July 30th, 2012

Orpingtons- lavendar, blue, chocolate
Modern Game bantams
Cream legbar
White crested ducks???

This IS exciting!!!!! Thanks!

Violet July 30th, 2012

Please say that you are bringing in purple guineas =D

willow July 31st, 2012

blue marans! so tempted by the hatching eggs but would much rather order chicks!

Gail July 31st, 2012

Partridge Chantecler – I just fell in love with the look of them, but I can’t find them anywhere.
(This spring we hatched two half Black Australorps half Welsummers – one rooster one hen, and so far they are gorgeous – rooster has brilliant red neck feathers, hen is getting gold wing bars and neck -can’t wait to see what they look like as adults – but they are really big, and their “mom” is a bantam, so she really got more than she expected.)

omar August 1st, 2012

Buff Delawares now there’s a project

Nicole August 2nd, 2012

I would love to be able to get some Blue Copper and Wheaten Marans as well as Lavender Orpingtons and Wheaten Ameraucanas as day-old chicks. I’d also love to see you carry Jubilee and Chocolate Orpingtons. Can’t wait to see what these new breeds will be!

Will August 8th, 2012

I would love some Modern Game Bantams since My Pet Chicken is the only hatchery that sexes bantams!!! I just love how the stand up and have those legs

Kathy Pierquet August 12th, 2012

I am a first-time chicken owner with 6 different breeds, which are 4 weeks old tomorrow. I have loved them since they arrived and am so interested in seeing them change and watching my husband build a glorious home for them. However, as they change, I am somewhat confused about which breed is which, especially 2 of them. Any help with details to identify the Welsummer and the Easter Egger? One of these is the smallest in my flock and looked like a chipmunk upon arrival. Looking forward to communicating with other chicken lovers! Kathy

Amanda Carpenter August 19th, 2012

Big size frizzle chickens, showgirls and turkens

Teddy September 16th, 2012

Orpingtons… ~*~ BLUE ~*~, Chocolate, Jubilee, White… really, any Orpingtons. Huge fluffy English ones would be extra cool too.
Dorkings- maybe Red?
Sussex- Great to have more color options
Houdan
Americaunas- Blue, Buff
Java
*WANTED: Big fluffy sweet hens. Individuals always vary but friendly, gentle, easy going, lap chicken breeds are so much fun. It’s great to get multiple color options on the classic favorite breeds. Cool egg colors are a definite plus.
P.S. Those Favacaunas (?) are sooooo adorable.
Thanks and can’t wait to see what shows up in 2013!

helen chavis September 19th, 2012

i think mixing silkies and americaunas would be soo cute.

John September 25th, 2012

I would like to see Rhode Island White

Liz Hessen November 8th, 2012

We got 6 spring chicks from you. They are great and healthy and amazing.They haven’t started laying yet…that will happen around mid December. We created an fb page and a blog with lots of photos of the girls. They’re such cute trouble!

CATHY STEEN December 8th, 2012

I will be excited to see any of your new breeds. I have purchased babies from you 3 times. I have two of these orders placed for 2013. All of the chicks have robust and healthy. My husband and I have become “My Pet Chicken” addicts. I am sure when your new breeds come out we will try them too since I have also found some others that I wish to order later in 2013! When will you tell us what the new breeds are?
Cathy Steen

Melissa Zeno May 28th, 2013

Oh I would LOVE to see Lavender Orpingtons and Javas!! I already have my breeds picked for next year for my very first floce I just may have to hold on so I can see what is new. How Exciting.

Melissa Zeno May 28th, 2013

Ameraucanas would be AWESOME!

Melissa Zeno May 28th, 2013

The Nankin would be great

Melissa zeno October 29th, 2013

When will you be posting about the breeds that will be available to Spring of 2014?
How early are we able to order for 2014?

traci October 31st, 2013

Soon! Hang in there! We should be offering them within the month.

Melissa zeno October 31st, 2013

When will new breeds for season 2014 be revealed?

traci October 31st, 2013

Soon! Hang in there. 🙂

Melissa zeno November 7th, 2013

Will ducks ever be considered?

Lissa December 19th, 2013

No, as the My Pet Chicken name suggests, we focus exclusively on chickens. Sorry! 🙂

Cathy April 5th, 2016

Well?????What happened????

Lissa April 5th, 2016

We did add lots of these rare breeds, Cathy, including some of the suggestions in the comments. Chocolate Orpingtons and Cream Legbars, for example. But also some varieties we’re developing ourselves, like Favaucanas and Barred Olive Eggers.
