We’ve got the blues! September 17, 2012

In May, I posted a teaser about some new breeds we were starting, and asked you all which breeds YOU wanted most to see us carry. I’m so happy to announce that some of those breeds are now available! As hatching eggs, we have Cream Legbars, and as baby chicks we now offer Blue Ameraucanas (even some available to ship today!), Wheaten Ameraucanas, and Blue Orpingtons. The Legbars and Ameraucanas lay true-blue eggs and the Orpingtons are an extremely docile, beautiful bird with slate blue feathers. All make wonderful family birds!

Quantities are extremely limited, so if you’d like some of these breeds, you’ll want to order quickly! We hope you enjoy these beautiful new breeds we’ve worked hard to bring you.

You have some very pretty chickens.:) I think Ameraucanas are so cute with their fluffy faces and i love the blue eggs. I have one now she isnt the nicest hen I have but she is sooo pretty and she lays blue eggs which is neat. thinking about getting more in the spring because ALL of her eggs that i have hatched have been roosters with horrible dispositions.

What great additions! I love Blue Orpingtons. And the Ameraucanas are always a hit with their blue eggs. I admit I don’t know much about Cream Legbars but they sure look like a nice breed to try (and blue eggs too!).

Just a question about Ameraucanas: I got three beauties from you, hatched May 21. When can I expect to see eggs? Thought they might be laying by now. I keep a light on in the coop 12 hours a day. My other 3 girls (brown egg layers) have been laying for a year. Is there anything else I should be doing?

Ameraucanas tend to come into lay a little later than most breeds (7 months or so rather than 6), and they aren’t especially good winter layers, either. You may see a few eggs when she first hits maturity, but unless you live in a warm, sunny area (like California, for example), she probably won’t start laying with regularity until spring.

What lines do the legbars come from? I’d love to get some!

I love the three beautiful Cream Legbars I got from you! I love them so much, they are a joy in my flock and I just go crazy over the eggs! They are egg laying machines! THANK YOU!

They are all beautiful additions—and sell out too fast! Do you ever have waiting lists???

Lissa October 12th, 2014

I’m sorry–we don’t do waiting lists! But we do have a blog post about how to get the rare chicken breeds that always seem to be sold out.
