Cochin Bantam

 

Oh Boy is this one sweet little bird~ They are super friendly & comical; love to be held and talked to and will follow around those they are bonded with.

A great bird if you are limited on space but want some real backyard eye candy to enjoy! Because they are tiny and have extremely heavily feathered shanks, this bird should never be left to free range without supervision of a person or very well trained LGD. They prefer to hang out in their coops or in a small garden (where they will do little harm).

Appearance 

Cedar Crest Farm breeds Black and White Mottled, Blue, Calico, Lavender, Lavender Mottled, Mille Fleur & White Cochin Bantams.

Erminette

 

Originating from the West Indies around 1860, the Erminette is an exquisite bird which lays an impressive amount of White to cream eggs. Around 1887, the Erminette was crossed with the Earl Derby Game, White Leghorn, and Light Brahama. The result of this crossing is a beautiful fowl with vibrant plumage, small combs, improved egg production, and a heavier weight than their ancestors. Their temperament is docile and they are excellent foragers. Very aware of their surroundings, this bird is inheirantly skilled at evading predators.                   

 A true delight for the backyard fancier.

A strikingly white bird with random and evenly spaced black markings, single comb, and either yellow, white, or white polka dot legs.

Hens lay an average of 200 creamy white eggs per year.

Pullets average 3-4 lbs and Cocks average 5 lbs.

Swedish Bluebar

 

Appearance

The deep blackness of a Svart Hona with the beautiful splash pattern of an Isbar makes this a visually striking breed. 

Habitat

The Fabulous Swedish Bluebar has taken the chicken fancier world by storm!  Extremely rare and breathtakingly beautiful, this is a Must Have for even the fanciest of fanciers! We have crossed the alluring and mystical beauty of the Svart Hona over the intriguing vivid blue of the Isbar. Since egg color follows the hen, our pullets lay an Isbar colored egg. (Mint green with lovely deep gold spots.) Their gorgeous eggs look more like they belong in an art gallery rather than an egg carton! The result of this designer bird, is a soft blue body with a deep black head, black eyes, black skin & black Shanks.  Magical & mysterious~
