We maintain a large number of full size chicken breeds. Our assortments are nothing like anywhere else as you are more than likely to get more rare breeds than common ones. You will get a great chance to experience rare and heritage poultry without a great outlay of expense. In fact I always recommend to first time chicken raiser to get an assortment and explore the world on their own and ignore all the internet reviews and recommendations on a particular breed. Do your own research and find your own favorite that matches with your climate, lifestyle, and personal interests.
Number in () is maximum per hatch.
