Our Commitment: Black Bresse or American Black Bresse are bred from multiple pens. We aim to produce the similar sizes and meet similar standards to that of the White Bresse. Our goal is for 7 pound roosters and 5.5 pound hens which balances their size and keeps a full basket of eggs as well. We strive to retain the black feathers (no leakage), white ear lobes, red full combs and blue steel legs they are known for. We are one of very few farms lucky to be a home for Black Bresse. We aim to produce consistent size with every chick that is produced so you have a foundation for your self-sustaining flock. This means buying quality birds one or two times from us, so you have a solid foundation flock to grow with and we've put in the hard work.
Black Bresse grow outs are typically pre-ordered, if you are interested to know when they are estimated to ship/ready for pickup please contact us. We're happy to arrange a specific shipping/ pickup timeframe, we're flexible.

They are chosen, farmers choice, based on the proposed American Bresse Standard of Perfection. We certainly will work with you toward specific needs or traits you seek for your flock, when possible.
Black Bresse Chickens are considered the worlds most delicious chicken. Bresse or American Bresse will lay 250 creme colored eggs per year. Bresse are heat and cold tolerant which makes them a contender for the best homestead chicken. Bresse chickens have black feathers, red combs and blue steel legs. Roosters are typically 7 pounds and hens weigh in at 5.5 pounds. There truly is no difference in this American Bresse other than color. Our current sizes we are seeing about half pound short of our goal.
