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

10 Greenfire Farms Day-Old Dampierre Chicks

The lucky winner of this auction will receive 10 unsexed day-old Dampierre chicks, one of the rarest chicken breeds in the world and only now being introduced to North America for the first time. The Dampierre is the re-creation of an old French chicken breed, the Normande, that died out more than a century ago. Until the end of the 1800s the Normande existed, as you might have guessed, in the Normandy region of France. The Normande resembled its mottled cousin the Gournay, except the Normande sported a feather crest on its head. The Normande was known for its fine white meat, delicate bones, and abundant production of white eggs that the hens were willing to incubate and hatch.

In the late 20th Century three backyard poultry experts in Normandy were able to recreate the vanished breed using Guornay and a Crevecouer, and in 1996 the birds --renamed Dampierre to distinguish them from the historical Normande breed-- were formally introduced at a French poultry show. In the intervening two decades the breed has continued to be improved and standardized, although selective breeding is still needed to advance the breed. For example, while most of the chicks we hatch develop the signature feather crest, some of the chicks lack this feature. It has not been formally adopted into the French standard.

When you buy Dampierres you should expect to cull some chicks in order to continue to improve the breed. Points to consider when evaluating your birds include the presence and shape of the feather crest, comb size and shape, and the general type of the bird. The number of Dampierre breeders can be counted on one hand, and our recent import of this ultra-rare breed creates a tremendous opportunity to secure the future of the Dampierre.

The pictures in this auction represent the quality of the stock Greenfire Farms’ breeding stock. The winning bidder will receive 10 or more unsexed day-old 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.

  10. A seller advertising imported poultry must be prepared to provide a copy of the USDA import permit proving the legal importation of the poultry. Only legally imported poultry may be sold at auction.
  11. A seller or buyer may not use an auction or RBA-related tools to negotiate direct sales outside of an auction. This includes asking buyers to "gift" money via PayPal.

  13. This is a community. Be POLITE and courteous. If you are rude, you may be asked to leave.
