Ayam Cemani - The Indonesian Black Chicken
**Cemani will be available again in fall 2018**

Purebred Ayam Cemani, GFFxSmithsonian lines. These rare Indonesian birds are fibro-melanistic; black, inside and out! Yes- their skin, bones, and meat are black! Their organs and blood are darker than normal. The Cemani is a light-bodied bird, laying an average sized cream colored eggs. Hens are somewhat light-duty layers and are rarely broody. Cold hardy. Good foragers. Typically quiet, docile birds. Their meat is both unique and delicious!
Fibro Melanosis (FM) is a gene mutation and can difficult to breed for. Chicks with imperfections (color leakage) are sold for much less than our perfect birds. Culls are still capable of producing perfect cemani, however we do not advise breeding non-conforming cemani that perpetuate poor genes.

Olive Eggers
**OE's will be available again in fall 2018**

Olive eggers are a must for any laying flock! 1st generation hens typically lay turqoise to mint-green eggs, with each subsequent generation laying darker eggs, from moss green to sage to clay green/brown. It is not possible to determine what color a pullet will produce until she starts laying though. Olive eggers may have pea combs or pea-hybrid combs and may or may not have muffs. They can vary greatly in coloration, though blue and black are our most common colors. Hens are typically very friendly and somewhat chatty and often become flock favorites! Olive eggers are light to medium bodied birds, with hens laying large or XL green eggs in abundance. Very cold hardy, excellent foragers, excellent broodies.

Heritage Turkeys
**Turkeys will be available again in 2019**

Our heritage turkeys are bred for disposition, physique, and coloration. Hens should be prolific layers and excellent broodies and mothers. Laying season can start as early as January or February and run in to June or July, weather dependant. Hens typically sit 12-20 eggs at a time. Toms are typically easy to handle and non-aggressive. Both toms and hens typically have good protection instincts; around here we can rely on them to attack predating hawks and skunks. Toms often dress out 22-26lbs, hens 14-18lbs.
No more turkeys this year! Check back in 2019!
