Our focus: personality and type. We have worked hard to obtain eggs from several high performing show breeders, and then have kept only the cream of the crop for breeding. And a mean rooster will never participate in our breeding program. Only the sweet birds are bred.
Miss Chew-bawk-a, a lucky girl! In December 2018, a Cooper's hawk swooped down and took off with our special lady! Her mom ran after the hawk with a rake, screaming bloody murder. The hawk dropped Chewy from about 20 feet up, and Chewy hit the ground and lay like the dead. Thankfully she is recovering from two puncture wounds and a bloody nose. We are very very happy to still have our girl!
Everyone's favorite, with the most amazing personality, Crystal! She is also Miss Super Broody, going broody at 5 months and happily raising 12 chicks (until we sold a few to give her a break!) She is constantly waiting for her next brood. So eggs from this girl are few and far between. But I'm sure we will hatch every single one!
