12 Greenfire Farms Schijndelaar Day-Old Chicks
The lucky winner of this auction will receive 12 or more unsexed day-old Schijndelaar (pronounced “Shine-dul-ar”) chicks. And hidden behind this impossible name with colliding consonants is perhaps the coolest modern chicken breed to emerge and be officially recognized in the latter part of the 20th Century.
Schijndel is a small Netherlands village that over its seven-hundred-year history has given birth to an astounding number of competitive cyclists and one very interesting poultry breed. (Perhaps two since Schijndel is at the center of the region that gave us the Brabanter.)
The Schijndelaar was created by local veterinarian Ruud Kaasenbrood in the late 20th Century by crossing Araucanas (for their blue egg gene), Sumatras (for their long bodies), Dutch crested fowls (for their crests), Brabant fowl (for who know what) and Leghorns (for their legendary egg production). The product is a beautiful crested breed whose hens lay an abundance of green eggs.
The white color was officially recognized in the Netherlands in 2001, and later also in Germany and other countries. Other colors include chocolate, blue, black, and cuckoo. The chicks in this auction will be the white variety.
