Pullets, Cockerels & Non-sexed available.
Lays brown eggs.

This layer is one of the top egg producers of large brown eggs, and performs well in all types of conditions. The females are black with a tinge of red on the neck and breast. Female live weight is approximately 4 lbs. at 19 weeks, 5 lbs. at 30 weeks, and 5½+ lbs. at end of lay. Males are a dark barred colour, similar to Barred Rocks, and weigh approximately 1½ lbs. heavier than females.

Rhodebar

Pullets, Cockerels & Non-sexed available.

Lays brown eggs.

uilt upon the legendary practicality of the Rhode Island Red, a dual purpose breed that was developed in the United States in the late 1800s. Famous for prodigiously laying tinted eggs, the Rhode Island Red lacked one quality that was highly prized in Britain: the ability to produce sexable day-old chicks. The creation of the Rhodebar solved that problem. It has retained the egg-laying ability of the Rhode Island Red, but it has the additional benefit of producing visibly sexable chicks.

Frey's Special Dual Purpose
Slow growth
Pullets, Cockerels & Non-sexed available.

This breed is a combination of some of the heaviest dual purpose breeds still in existence. It was developed for those who want a hardy, healthy chicken with firm and flavourful meat.

Mortality is very low, and weak legs and heart attacks are almost unheard of.

Females are a rusty red colour, and are not recommended for growers wanting high egg production. Males are white, and have a tendency to flight as they mature, so keeping the ratio 1:10 (males: females) or lower will help.

Rustic Ranger
Alternative growth
Pullets, Cockerels & Non-sexed available.

This is our heaviest coloured broiler.  The Rustic Rangers are a perfect compromise between rusticity, feed conversion rate and yield.  They are a great pasture bird and excellent forager.  If you are looking for a pasture bird this is the breed for you. They produce a table bird in just 12 weeks.

White Rock Cornish
Fast growth
Pullets, Cockerels & Non-sexed available.

These extra heavy meat-type birds are bred for meat only. Their strength is in their efficient conversion of feed into meat. If purchased as non-sexed, the fighting of the males is reduced. Females will substitute well for capons. Cornish Game Hens are produced by growing females of this breed to 2 lbs. live weight (approximately 4-5 weeks). White Rocks are typically grown for 8-10 weeks, more or less if larger or smaller birds are desired. We will guarantee delivery of 100% live, healthy chicks, but we cannot accept responsibility beyond that point.

The Artisan Gold is a rare breed that is smaller in size and slow growing. It has black feathers, unique colouring in the face and feet, long black legs, and a pronounced beak. It has natural tendencies such as roaming and roosting, and offers a robust, gamey taste that is exotically different from traditional turkeys.

Large White

Large white turkeys are the fastest growing and most feed efficient turkeys. They can grow to tremendous size, however keeping them for longer than 18 weeks will decrease their feed efficiency. 

Turkeys are very delicate and require careful attention to all details in the first few weeks of life. Turkeys can be processed as early as 10 weeks of age. it takes approximately 2.5 lbs of feed per pound of live weight.

MiniCLASSIC White

The MiniCLASSIC may be small in stature, but big in everything that counts. This special bird has been bred to develop and mature like natural bred turkeys of the past, and this little meatball is sure to impress.  For the farmer, this means that the Toms don't grow as big and can be harvested more efficiently.

This bird can be harvested early without sacrificing meat quantity or quality.
It is a perfect complement to any specialized or free-range operation, and thrives under those conditions. For the consumer who wants a small, organic, locally-grown bird for a special occassion, they won't find anything that compares to the MiniCLASSIC.

White Muscovy Duck

 Grain-fed Muscovy duck has been widely renowned for its distinctive flavour, firm flesh, and high yield after cooking – Muscovies have more breast meat, smaller bones, and less fat than other ducks. The drakes are about twice as large as the females, so the grower has the right-sized bird to suit almost everyone.

The new hybrid Muscovy ducklings look like the original Muscovy, but they eat somewhat more per bird per day, and grow more rapidly. For the traditional roasting duck with that fine “ducky” flavour, you need to raise them at least 14 weeks. The feed efficiency will drop as the birds get older and heavier, but the improved meat quality and better dressing percentage will make it worthwhile.

Fun Fact: In Canada, Muscovies have earned a reputation in an area entirely unrelated to their food production value – as economical, environmentally friendly additions to fly control regimes in other livestock productions.
