Most ancient of all domestic breeds of poultry. Silver gray is the best known colour variety of the breed. The males are silvery white and black and the females are white and ashy gray. Both sexes have a 5th toe, and a long body on very short legs. They lay an off white or creamy tinted egg. A very docile and friendly breed that should not be kept with more active or aggressive breeds as they tend to get picked on. They are slower maturing and typically do not begin to lay until 26 weeks or older. Males have very good meat quality. These are very rare and it may take time to complete your order.
