Breed Info Below

Delaware:
Our Delawares originate from Chickcharney Farm in NC.

Chickcharney Delawares are not a re creation of the breed, their birds are a combination of several different original bloodlines.
Delawares were created in the 1940's by George Ellis from Ocean View, Deleware. He bred Barred Plymouth Rock Roosters to New Hampshire females and kept the barred Columbian patterned white birds for future breedings and he produced a relatively fast growing bird for the broiler market. The Delaware breed was knocked out of the market in the 1950's by the Cornish cross birds which are the industry standard today.

Delaware's lay around 4-5 brown or pinkish eggs a week

Barnevelder:
Our Barnevelders are primarily Johan lines
Johan van Achterberg of Hidden Meadow Farm in Connecticut, brought some pure Barnevelder eggs to the USA after a visit to his Netherlands homeland. He maintained this line until his death. Fossil Rock farm in NY then maintained the lines for awhile. Our birds come from Fossil Rock and we have some pure Johan birds and some 3/4 Johan birds.

The Barnevelder breed was developed around 1850 in the Dutch town of Barneveld. They are a large fowl dual purpose breed with a docile personality, compact build and broad breast. The breed comes in Black double laced (original), Blue double laced and Splash, all with a single comb and yellow legs. They are poor flyers. We only have Black double laced birds.
Our girls lay 3-5 dark brown eggs a week

Cream Legbar:
Our Cream Legbars are all properly crested birds and descend from the GreenFire Farms A,B,C lines. We don't keep flighty, nervous or aggressive Legbars. We want a friendly or tolerant bird. Cream Legbars are a crested medium sized large fowl with a straight comb and yellow legs, and they can fly very well

Cream Legbars are an Autosexing breed that can be sexed at hatch and this trait breeds true. We do not keep ambigous appearing chicks for breeding as that is a sure way to lose the autosexing traits.

Cream Legbars were created in England by breeding a blue egg laying hen from Chile with other breeds and refined them to be an autosexing blue egg laying bird.

As a breed the hens can lay eggs ranging from mint green to baby blue.
Our girls lay 4-7 eggs a week
