About Us


We started our chicken adventure with a mixed flock to get a few eggs on the table. In time we decided to breed birds that were not only delightful yard art, but good producers of interesting eggs as well. After dealing with some nasty roosters, temperament became as important if not more so than beautiful eggs. We set about getting birds with these qualities and have added pens and a large cabinet incubator to help reach our goal. Everything we do is all about breeding nice birds with good dispositions that lay interesting eggs. To that end we are working with Silverudds Blue, [previously know as Isbars], Cream Legbars and Marans.


We have the sought after First Import Silverudds Blue. These birds have the desired dark eyes and legs many seek. We do not get the red leakage and lighter eyes seen in the second group imported by Green Fire Farms. We looked long and hard to find two breeders with pure first import lines. Our birds are a combination of those two lines. They are wonderful producers of green eggs even in our Texas heat.

Our Cream Legbars are Cream. We do not get the Crele and White that many are working with. We are a member of the Cream Legbar Club and are working our birds towards the proposed standard. The Cream Legbar Club is working the breed towards APA acceptance and they are almost there. In addition to breeding our birds to the standard for type, we are also working to make sure the eggs are blue. Some of the Legbars have a green tint egg. Any that show up with a tint go into pens that create our wonderful crosses.


 We started with a Black Copper Marans rooster that we used to create olive eggers. I was impressed with his easy going disposition and have added a few more of this variety as well as Blue Copper Marans to our program. Egg color is good and we are trying to improve our type. We desire to breed our birds to the standard and want to produce type birds and dark egg color . In 2020 we will be looking for a quality line to add into to what we have to improve our type and hopefully also add a little more to the egg color we are already getting. 


Because I started to really enjoy my Black and Blue Copper Marans, we decided to get more Marans and wanted something a little different than is found in my area. Recently we have obtained some very nice Wheaten Marans lines. We got our starting birds from Marans Unlimited here in Texas. They are breeders of quality birds and do well at the shows. We have just started to work these birds and are excited to work both their type and egg color.


New in 2019 are Isabella Leghorns. I saw photos of them and thought they were stunning. So.. we obtained two lines and are growing them out to have eggs and chicks in 2020. We will be trying to work the birds to the Leghorn standard as we move forward with the breed.

Because I have a mad scientist side, we combine several of our breeds to get crosses with a purpose. I have learned to keep some back up birds around and I use them to make crosses that should be good production birds. Temperament is a very high priority for us, so we look for friendly birds where the roosters are not people aggressive. Next on the must have list is colored eggs. We are working to get eggs that range from mint to olive green. Check out our Cream Blue LeMar-Bars, and Fiesta Red for beautiful eggs and birds. New in 2020 will be a cross we call Silver Bullet. You can find out more information on our breeds and crossed in the Our Birds section of the site.

We are always available to answer questions. You can send us an email, but the best way is to reach us is through Facebook. We have both a PAGE and a GROUP. You will need to request acceptance in the group. We take lots of photos and Facebook is where they end up. The group is a better place to see when we have available shipping dates for eggs and to get on our waiting list. If you prefer Instagram, we can be found there as well.
