Black Bresse Chickens - Juveniles & Adults
Our Commitment: 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 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), 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 the best tasting chicken and be the best chicken for my homestead.
All these ages will ship the 2nd or 3rd week (Monday or Tuesday pending weather) of the selected month. You will receive an email about a week prior to let you know they are shipping/ready for pickup.
