SEX-LINK (Also known as Red Stars or Isa Browns)
The Golden Comet has been widely acclaimed in all areas where brown eggs are preferred. The reason is simple - they are one of the finest brown egg layers available today. They mature early and lay eggs of excellent size and quality. An extremely quiet bird that is able to withstand the colder, non-insulated laying houses. The chicks may be sexed by color - pullets red and roosters white. The mature pullet is golden red in color, but has some white showing throughout her neck and back. The cockerels are very similar to the white rock size and with very little color around the neck, wings, and tail. Good bird to raise without leg problems.
St. Run $1.80 / Pullets $2.45 / Ckls. 65¢
A picture perfect chicken. The Lanveder Orpington is a flock we've been hatching here at the hatchery for a couple of years - to get the right color and larger flock to offer to our customers. These hens (our girls) are a very docile large bird. Lay very well - large lite brown eggs. They have laid very well in the winter months also. Will make excellent setters. We can't say enough good things about the Lavender Orpingtons except they are Truly Picture Perfect.
St. Run Only - $9.00
This breed belongs to the American Class. They do have tail feathers and muffs. Our hens lay different shades of blue and green eggs. It is said these eggs are low in cholesterol. All I know is they lay very well and beautiful colors.

BROWN LEGHORN (single comb)
Looking for a chicken to lay large white eggs? This is the bird. Brown Leghorns mature early, don't eat a lot and still lay eggs. Large red combs and feathers are beautiful. Hardy bird also.
