Our Commitment: With our Black Bresse chicks or American Black Bresse chicks, we aim to produce similar size and 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.

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.

I received beautiful Black Bresse baby chicks. They are healthy, active and happy chicks. The more they grow the more beautiful they are to me. Corwyn truely cares about her customers. She took the time to answer my questions and give me advice in caring for my baby chicks. Will order again!

Thriving Chicks!!

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!
