Very rare and hard to get! Won't find on the internet...unless you know someone!
Num Num Farms was extremely fortunate last year to be able to purchase Hmong chicks and eggs through contacts. Now we are gearing up to bring hatching eggs (contact for other things) to you from time to time.
Our stock is SOLID fibro skin, meat, bones, and innards (legs, nails, beak, tongue, etc can be a multitude of coloring and that is NORMAL AND NATURAL for this landrace!!)
Hmong (Quaib Hmoob)
Hmong chickens are a land-race chickens raised primarily by the Hmong hill tribes of East Asia and South East Asia. The Hmong chickens are a fibro-melanistic breed of chicken. Hmong chickens first arrived in the USA in the late 70s with the arrival Hmong refugees from Laos escaping a civil war between royalists and communists. There isn't a set standard on how Hmong chickens are supposed to look like since they are a landrace breed however there are still defining characteristics that are associated with their breed. Depending on where you get your stock there will be slight differences. The Hmong chickens from America comes primarily from Hmong refugees of Laos. These birds tend to have an upright body, tight feathering, mulberry to dark skin, pea combs or straight comb. they also should have the ability to be broody and being fierce mothers. Some will give out blue lobes but it usually isn't necessarilly a needed feature. These birds tend to lean towards an oriental build with some game or jungle fowl influence. Hmong chickens in other parts of Asia will differ, for example the Hmong chickens in Vietnam tend to lean more towards an asiatic build with some hints of oriental influence. More common colors one can find in the Hmong chickens are the silver and gold versions but other colors are availablle after all these guys are a landrace. What they lack in the egg department they make up for it in their ability to freerange well. They are great as a flock bird, some roosters may display aggression towards other roosters but nothing too serious like that of game breeds. Their meat is flavorful and the best parts is arguably the dark meats, they make a great soup bird which their human counterparts have made with for generations. They are decently heavy but that also depends on the particular strain you are working with. Of course it is a black meat breed hence the fibromelanistic title they are given but don't be alarmed if they aren't super mega dark. In the white Hmong dialect "qaib xiav nqaij" means blue skinned chicken, Green Hmong dialect often calls them "qab xav nkaaj" meaning blue indigo chickens.
Our Egg Policy, Do NOT BUY if you do not agree.
We sell only the freshest eggs we have available. All typically laid within 36 hrs of shipping. We carefully package to ensure breakage and minimal shaking during transit to you. HOWEVER buying hatching eggs can be a gamble due to the post office and how they are handled. We mark the package up to ensure they know 'this end up' 'fragile' 'no xray' 'live embyros'. All packages come with insurance that covers damage to the box which damages the eggs (broken). If you get a box that is damaged with broken eggs we will need pictures in order to put a claim in. We unfortunately cannot promise YOUR hatch rate. We use a Brinsea to hatch eggs out monthly and get near 100% hatch out ourselves, meaning our eggs are FERTILE when they ship. Eggs that do NOT develop or develop and die are not our responsibility given we do not control handling, how you incubate, etc. If you have a problem contact us please. We are more than happy to give you helpful tips to maximize your hatch rate.
