RareBreedAuctions.com is dedicated to preserving America’s rare and heritage breeds of poultry and livestock. We believe that the best way to save these breeds is to create a market for these animals where buyers and sellers can meet and bargain in a fair and professional environment facilitated by state-of-the-art technology. RareBreedAuctions.com is committed to providing that opportunity to you, the buyer or seller of rare breeds.

Other auction sites created by livestock experts have failed the test of time due to a lack of technical proficiency and poor customer service. At RareBreedAuctions.com, we specialize in raising livestock, but we also make our living in developing and maintaining customer relationships through online communication.

We are committed to building a strong and ethical community that allows members to sell and bid with confidence. We pledge to be responsive, helpful and friendly to our members and guests, and we encourage you to tell us about your experiences so that we can continuously improve our service.

We welcome you to our community and look forward to meeting your needs.

15 Greenfire Farms Day-Old Vorwerk Chicks

The lucky winner of this auction will receive 15 or more unsexed day-old ultra-rare Vorwerk chicks from a newly imported line of beautiful German birds. Be one of the first in the United States to own this stunning two-tone Old World breed.

The Vorwerk is a strikingly beautiful dual purpose breed was developed in Germany more than a century ago by Oskar Vorwerk. The Vorwerk was developed using Lakenvelders, buff Orpingtons, buff Sussex, and Andalusians. It has always been a rare chicken breed despite its good looks, and it is virtually non-existent outside Continental Europe. Greenfire Farms imported our birds directly from highly regarded German stock. We have been very pleased by their performance on our farm. They're gentle, active foragers, and the hens produce a large number of tinted eggs. We've had very high fertility, and the breed seems generally robust. They take well to a pen but enjoy free-ranging whenever possible.

A few breeders claim to have Vorwerks in America, but this breed can be confused with gold Lakenvelders. It’s worth closely checking the pedigree of any birds that are claimed to be Vorwerks including evidence they were legally imported. Bantam Vorwerks have existed in the United States for a few decades. These American bantams were not imported but instead were developed in this country. The Vorwerks you will be bidding on here are large fowl, not bantams.

The pictures on this auction represent the quality of the stock that Greenfire Farms is currently working with. The winning bidder will receive 15 or more unsexed day-old Vorwerk chicks. They will be vaccinated for Marek's. These chicks will be shipped within three weeks of the close of this auction. We guarantee live delivery and the health of the chicks for 72 hours after you receive them. The auction winner pays an additional $35 in shipping costs.

By bidding, you agree to our Terms and Conditions.

  4. Read the text of the auction carefully before you bid. Once you bid your bid cannot be undone. Your bid is a legally binding offer to the seller, and if you are the high bidder your offer is automatically accepted and becomes a legally binding contract under which you are obligated to pay the seller.
