Elk Valley Farm
This lucky winner will receive a mix of some of our finest breeds, which is typical of our Breeders Choice Option. We will not be able to tell you what breeds you will be receiving prior to shipping and you cannot make any breed selections. However, we’ll be happy to help you identify the breeds you received once they have arrived.
Below you will find a short description of the breeds you might be receiving:
Black Copper Marans
Our Black Copper Marans roosters are straight from Greenfire Farms newly imported stock, while our hens are from Bev Davis, Wade Jeane and Greenfire Farm (A line) lines for diversity. We sought out to find a line that would reliably produce dark-colored eggs as well as follow the breed standard. We only hatch eggs that are either a 7,8 or 9 on the 2018 Marans color chart.
Blue Birchen Marans
This French line of Blue Birchen Marans is known to produce some of the darkest chocolate-colored eggs of any Marans variety. We only hatch eggs that are either a 7,8 or 9 on the 2018 Marans color chart. They have gentle personalities and are simply one of the most stunning color variety! The winner of this auction will receive a mix of blue, black and splash.
Blue Laced Red Wyandotte
Our Wyandottes stand out for their blue lacing and deep mahogany color. This vigorous and cold hardy breed maintains a calming disposition, making them easy to care for. We do NOT carry hatchery Blue Laced Red Wyandottes! Our main flock is derived from Jerry Foley. This bloodline is noted for its stunning and near perfect blue lacing around a deep mahogany red. We breed blue on blue (no splash or black). Like any blue breed of chicken, the Blue Laced Red Wyandottes will produce blue, black, and splash laced offspring. You will receive a random mix of these three colors when you order from us. We are not set up to sell only one color variety at this time.
Silver Laced Wyandotte
These large birds thrive in regions with colder climates and can adapt well to confinement. They typically lay around 200 light brown, medium-size eggs per year. We do NOT carry hatchery Silver Laced Wyandottes! Our main flock is derived directly from Jerry Foley. This bloodline is recognized for its stunning and near perfect lacing around a deep body type. With this being said our flock makes a great choice for someone who would like to raise birds for the poultry shows.
We obtained our lines from two of the top breeders in the US. This robust breed is the definition of yard candy. This breed possesses all of the positive aspects backyard chicken lovers search for. The hens are productive layers for most of the year and can lay an extra-large egg. You can expect to receive genetically diverse chicks in both crested and un-crested varieties as well as colors associated with this breed (red, gray, black and white).
We guarantee live delivery and the health of the chicks for 72 hours after you receive them. The auction winner pays an additional $50 in shipping costs. NPIP and AI Clean (OR-420)
