Cayuga ducks are a beautiful example of a native New York heritage breed. With their iridescent colouring and black eggs they're sure to add something unique to your barnyard (or breakfast plate!) Cayugas lay black eggs at the beginning of the season, these eggs fade through grey to light grey/white as the season progresses. The colour is part of the eggs "bloom" and washes off.
These ducks are beautiful and personable, a great addition to any barnyard.
Cayugas are listed on the watch list with the Livestock Conservancy

The Crevecoeur chicken is listed as critical on the ALBC list, with less than 500 birds in the US, and less than 1000 in the global population.
The Crèvecoeur chicken is one of the oldest of the standard-bred fowls of France. The breed gets its name from Crève-Cœur en Auge, a small town in Normandy, France. The breed’s name translates as “broken heart”.
Solid black in color, Crèvecoeur chickens have crests and beards of moderate size, compact, well-proportioned bodies, and short legs. Their heads are adorned with a distinctive “v” comb. In movement they are quiet and deliberate and have peaceful temperaments.

From the French ‘chanter,’ “to sing,” and ‘clair,’ “bright,” the Chantecler is the first Canadian breed of chicken.
The breed is noted for having nearly no wattles and a small cushion comb – the comb appearing much like a small round button sitting low on the head. The small comb and wattles allow this breed to withstand the cold Canadian winters without worry of frostbite. Not surprisingly, the breed is noted for being very hardy, is an excellent layer of brown eggs with a reputation as a good winter layer, and has a well-fleshed breast. It is an excellent choice for anyone wanting a productive fowl that will excel in a wintry climate. The breed is also noted for being calm, gentle, and personable.
We specialize in buff Chanteclers!
