Home of quality chickens for exhibition or for a beautiful backyard flock. Good natured birds are very important to us. While we strive for our chickens to meet the Standard of Perfection, we also know that chicken keeping is more fun with friendly birds!

Our Birds

For personality, show winning quality and dark eggs, our Marans are family and customer favorites! Our gentle roosters and easy going hens have proven hatch after hatch to pass along good natured personalities. I have hatched eggs from various sources across the country to raise, select, and cross birds that are true to breed standards for type and egg color, have excellent leg and toe feathering, as well as being friendly and easy to handle. Egg color from our hens is typically in the 4-7 range on the Marans egg color chart. 

This year we are offering eggs and chicks from our show and breeder quality Blue Copper, Black Copper and Splash group. We currently have Black Copper and Blue Copper roosters with Black Copper, Blue Copper and Splash hens.

We currently have both smooth and frizzle hens that consistently produce strong and healthy chicks.

We have smooth and frizzle feather types and a fun variety of colors and patterns in our Serama Bantam flock. Our breeding birds are A and B sizes and their colors include: Wheaten, Black, Chocolate, Gold Laced, Duckwing-type and mottled. With Seramas, sizes and colors do not always breed true so there can be a wide variety of colors and patterns. Our birds are strong and cold hardy! Temperatures here in Ohio range from well below 0 to upwards of 100 degrees.  Just like our other birds on the farm, our Seramas live in fully insulated but unheated coops with access to go outside as they like during the day.
