Taking Spring 2023 Chick Orders
If you're looking for a heritage breed that is also a heavy egg producer this is the perfect bird. The 55 Flowery Hen is one of the best white egg layers and lays really nice large eggs. They are descendants of the Leghorn without the flighty and nervousness of commercial leghorns.
55 Flowery Hens are very hardy, great foragers and can turn small amounts of feed into nice big eggs. In many countries they're used for commercial egg production. The chicks are also auto sexing at hatch. If you're placing a chick order for this breed you can choose the sex of the chicks.
We have both the silver and the golden variety of this breed. When placing a chick order we will try to give a mix of color.
It's rather amazing how visually different the rooster looks from the hens; the roosters are white and the hens so colorful. Flowery means floral and the hens display the white spots considered flowers.
The 55 Flowery Hen was created in 1955 in Sweden by Father Marin Silverrudd and have proven to be his most successful creation.
ATTENTION: We require orders of a minimum of 10 day old chicks. These 10 can be a mix of any of our breeds This keeps the babies warm and healthy in the box. We guarantee live delivery of 10 or more chicks.
If you wish to order fewer you can contact us. This would be for an order for farm pickup of less than 10, or an order of less than 10 that has no live delivery guarantee.
