adding colour and fun to your flock.

Viking hens

 Go back to the 9th century with the icelandic chicken. This old remarkable breed is a mainstay in our breeding program. We have kept on with this breed due to the hardiness, egg laying abilities and abundance of color. Fertility is always good. Cockerels never challenge us and take very good care of their hens. Hens  can go broody and raise their own chicks. Icelandic hens can be broken of their broody nature if you prefer them to continue to lay eggs instead. They are very good mothers.  Eggs are white to tinted in color. You can expect to receive approx. 250 eggs per year.  Eggs size ranges from medium to large. This ancient rare breed is considered a landrace breed. A colorful variety that varies in appearance.  The Icelandic adapts well to a wide range of extreme temperatures. They free range quite well. Due to their flight ability, they can evade predators better than some other breeds.  Icelandic's are docile friendly birds. We have mostly crested birds in our flock.
