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.

Description

"MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME!" is what you'll be able to say when you bring these rare breed, elegant chickens home to your roost! This young Trio of AUGSBURGER chickens including one cockerel and two pullets, were purchased from GREENFIRE FARMS as day old chicks. This trio was hatched this Spring, and the best way to describe them is pure ELEGANCE. They have an amazing iridescent blue and green sheen to their GLOSSY, coal black feathers, off-set by their bright red combs and pure white earlobes. All three of the youngsters for sale in this listing have the desired duplex combs! They are submissive and demure in their current mixed flock.

From the GFF website:

"Augsburgers are one of the rarest chickens in the world. In 2000, there were merely 24 black Augsburger roosters remiaining on the planet. Recently, Greenfire Farms was lucky enough to import some of the last remaining Augsburgers, and we have been very pleasantly surprised at the hardiness and utility of this ultra-rare but productive breed. We have been amazed at the size and number of eggs that the hens produce. The brilliantly white eggs are disproportionately large for the size of the hen. Augsburgers offer an excellent combination of rarity and practicality that should appeal to any poultry enthusiast in America."

"The Augsburger is an extremely rare Bavarian chicken developed in the 1800s and is known for its duplex or buttercup comb, and the generous volume of large white eggs that its hens produce. The unusual comb allegedly was created by crossing the Le Fleche from France and the Lamotta from Italy into the Augsburger line. Only about 25% of pure Augsburgers manifest the duplex comb, and the remaining chicks have straight combs. We cannot guarantee which type of comb will grow on the chicks we ship, but as adults, birds from our flocks should produce chicks with duplex combs. In our hatches, we have lately seen as many as 50% of our chicks with the duplex comb."

Please ask any questions you may have before you bid. This trio will ship USPS Express in a new Horizon shipping box on a Monday or Tuesday within two weeks of auction close, weather permitting. Payment due immediately via Paypal. Buyer to pay 100.00 for shipping; difference of actual cost will be refunded via PayPal.

Please Note: If I get a local offer that would not require me to ship the Trio, I will end this auction early... IF THERE ARE NO BIDS. Thanks for looking, and good luck!
