BREEDERS OF FAMILY FRIENDLY CHICKENS
Lavender Orpington, Black Orpington, Light Sussex, Polish, and Bielefelder Chicks and Hatching Eggs
Located in South Central Wisconsin
My daughter's love of chickens brought me back into the chicken world after many years. We raise a small number of birds because we thoroughly enjoy them.
These are not hatchery birds nor did they originate from large hatchery stock. Animal well being is top priority for us. We do not overcrowd and feed a high quality pellet diet combined with fermented whole grains. Their diet is supplemented with fodder, fruits, vegetables, and mealworms. When weather permits, the birds are allowed to free range.
Our goal is to raise healthy, family friendly chickens that do well in a backyard flock. The breeds are specifically chosen for their temperament.
Ask about our Bielefelder and Lavender Orpington hatching eggs and chicks. Started pullets available occasionally.
Shipping available only when weather permits. Our goal is for you to receive healthy chicks, therefore, their safety and health will not be sacrificed to ship in cold weather. Shipping of day old chicks is $35.00 with a minimum of 10 chicks.
Hatch rate of shipped eggs cannot be guaranteed as there are too many variables involved. I do guarantee that I will test fertility and ensure a good hatch rate of a flock before shipping eggs from that group. Shipping of hatching eggs is $18.00.
UPDATE - DUE TO LONG DELAYS WITH USPS SHIPPING, I HAVE DECIDED TO POSTPONE SHIPPING ANY EGGS OR CHICKS.

Hatching Eggs $4.00 each or $35.00 per dozen

Relatively new to the United States, the Bielefelder is a large, beautiful dual purpose breed. Along with their friendly personality, they are very good layers of large to extra large brown eggs. Males are large and make a good roaster or soup bird. Their autosexing characteristic makes it easy to separate the extra males at hatch to begin them on a higher protein feed for quicker weight gain. A good addition to a backyard flock!

Hatching Eggs $3.00
Chicks: Straight run only $7.00
Who doesn't love the docile nature of the Orpington! Our Lavender Orpingtons are beautiful, fluffy, friendly birds with a stunning color. Another good dual purpose breed. They are good layers of medium sized brown eggs. Males make a good roaster or soup chicken. If you have children, Orpingtons are a must!
New for 2021 - We are growing out some beautiful black split lavender Orpingtons from Orpington Farmhouse Acres. These will be bred back to our lavenders to improve feather quality. From these pairings, there will also be black split lavender Orpington chicks in 2021.
Check back in 2021! Completed hatching for 2020. We have a nice group of grow outs for future breeding.
Completed hatching for spring/summer 2020. Will hatch only upon request. Hatching eggs available for local pickup only.
We purchased Light Sussex from an American Poultry Association certified flock. They have quickly become my daughters favorite - even more social than our Orpingtons! We are excited to see how these turn out. Stay tuned for possible offering in 2021.
