Our Quality: Black Bresse or American Black Bresse are breed from multiple pens. We aim to produce the similar sizes and meet similar standards to that of the White Bresse. Our goals 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), red full combs and blue steel legs they are known for. It's a fine balance but we are working to improve the American Black Bresse to make them a contender for the best homestead chicken.

We got 9 chicks from AZ Chickens. All 9 are healthy and happy and growing fast! We could not be happier with the start to our Bresse flock and the personalized attention we received from Colwyn and team. Highly recommend AZ Chickens if you have the best intentions to raise the best flock.
The chickens arrived on time and all alive. Did have 2 that had crooked toes, so I splinted them and their doing GREAT! I was impressed how they were packed ! I live in Wisconsin and it was very cold and they took extra precautions to keep them warm. Will plan to order again!
We were so impressed with Az Chickens. Our chicks arrived a few days ago healthy and lively. They have such great customer service and were amazing about communicating throughout the whole process. I was concerned about my chickens arriving safely in the cold weather, but when I picked up my box from the post office I could feel the warmth from heat packs. I can tell they care about their animals. Thank you Az Chickens!
We received gorgeous and healthy chicks + 1 from what we ordered.
