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.

You are bidding on 6 Lemon Cuckoo Orpington chicks (2-4 weeks old)

About the bird: The lemon cuckoo color in large fowl was created by bob follows. The cocks show either double bar factor of the barring gene or a darker golden lemon evenly barred with white. The hens are always the same coloring of light lemon and white. These birds are amazingly friendly. This variety loves people and are quite appropriate for families with children of all ages. They are a good dual purpose bird, being dependable egg layers and meaty broilers. The eggs are large and cream colored.

About the science of barring: The sex of any chick is determined by the hen. The cock carries two Z chromosomes (ZZ) The hen carries one Z chromosome and one W (ZW). The cock must pass on a Z chromosome while the hen passes either a Z or a W. Sex linked genes such as chocolate, silver, barring, etc. will be carried on the male chromosome.
