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.

10+ Greenfire Farms' Pavlovskaya

This auction is for 10+ unsexed, day-old Pavlovskaya from imported European bloodlines.

The Pavlovskaya is the most ancient breed of chicken in Russia. By the time Russians began to take stock of their native chicken breeds in the late 1800s, Pavlovskaya hens were already virtually extinct.

Many centuries ago, this breed emerged in the town of Pavlovo, a small enclave of peasants and craftsmen about 200 miles east of Moscow. The town was known for a number of unique agricultural specialties, including the breeding of fighting geese, canaries, and the cultivation of lemons. Some poultry historians believe that the Pavlovskaya are the foundational breed that gave rise to more recently developed crested breeds like the Polish, barthuners, and brabanters.

Pavlovskaya are known to be extremely cold hardy and have unique feathering on their feet that is similar to the feathering on wild grouse. A Russian myth describes the origin of the breed as an illicit tryst between a chicken and a grouse. Despite the hardiness of this smallish breed, Pavlovskaya all but perished in the Soviet era. At one time in the early 1990s, the total global population of authentic Pavlovskaya was reduced to two roosters, and one was infertile. By breeding the fertile rooster with somewhat similar hens, and then back-breeding to the father, the breed was reestablished. Today, very few of these remarkable birds remain even in their native Russia, and they are virtually unknown outide of that country. Nevertheless, in what was our most challenging import project yet, Greenfire Farms located a small breeding group and brought them to the United States.

The winning bidder will receive 10+ unsexed Pavlovskaya chicks that have been vaccinated for Marek's disease. These chicks will be shipped within 14 days after the close of this auction. We guarantee live delivery and the health of the birds for 72 hours after you receive them. The auction winner pays an additional $35 in shipping costs for Express Overnight delivery via USPS. The health of these chicks is guaranteed for the first 72 hours after receiving them.
