Are you concerned that when you buy chicks some might turn out to be roosters? Very disappointing, and in most cases the seller is not going to help you with your problem. You can buy from us with confidence because we breed several different breeds that are easily sexable as chicks, and I will stand behind that by replacing (if I have a suitable replacement pullet) or refunding your money.

We can do this because we use the genetics of chick down color to show the sex of each chick as it hatches. With the autosexing breeds, the difference is substantial, making them sexable as soon as they are hatched.

There are details about each breed we raise in the links on the left. This is a list of what we hope to have available in 2021.

Sexed Female Chicks (Guaranteed female)
BreedEggsNotes
Cream LegbarBlueOur most popular breed for backyard chickens
Welbar (autosexing Welsummer)Dark BrownVery rare autosexing dark egg layer, created by adding the gene for sexlinked barring to normal Welsummers. These are available in gold and silver
Olive EggerDark GreenAutosexing cross of the above 2 breeds. These are available in gold and silver
Olive Egger ProjectDark Green or dark brownAutosexing breeding project to create a stable line of olive eggers. Gold only, and greater than 50% chance of olive eggs, rest will lay dark brown eggs. No way to tell what they will lay, but should be excellent layers
Opal LegbarBlueSimilar to Cream Legbars, but with the lavender gene. The gene for blue eggs and cresting is not completely fixed in this line, so some pullets could lay light brown eggs and/or not have the crest of a good legbar

(males of all these may be available - inquire if interested)

Straight Run (not sexable, no guarantee)

Breeding Projects

I am very interested in genetics and have several projects going at all times. Many of the chicks that are available are the extras from those projects. They may carry some unusual genes, not always expressed (visible). The side effect of this is that availability can be up and down. Some of these have only a single hen laying, so there will never be enough to become widely available. I can get you onto a waiting list if certain breeds are very important to you, but I still may not be able to accomodate your wishes.
