Welcome to my website!
Hawthorn Hill is a family farm located in central Alberta, Canada and is home to a variety of animals and four breeds of Standard-bred Heritage chickens.
Many of the old, traditional breeds, including Orpingtons, Rhode Island Reds and Chanteclers are composite breeds. These were developed by poultrymen of the 19th and early 20th centuries to meet demands for economical, market quality fowl.
Cochins are now considered mainly ornamental, but they are one of the irreplaceable foundation breeds of poultry. The foundation breeds are of ancient descent and details of their origin have been lost to history. Their ambiguous beginnings make them especially treasured resources, for if they should become extinct they can never be recovered.
Quality, not quantity. I raise chickens on our farm as a hobby with a goal of continual improvement in the breeds I’ve chosen to work with. I do not operate a commercial business or hatchery, so I don't actually sell hatching eggs or baby chicks. Extra chickens are most often available in the late summer or fall.
