Hawthorn Hill Poultry - young pullets

Hawthorn's Buff Orp show winnerBuff Orpington: Their classic beauty, grace and dependability has made them long time favorites...from the competitive fancier to the backyard flock owner. Our Hawthorn Hill Buff Orpingtons have a proven track record for consistent quality that meets the highest standards.


Chantecler CockerelWhite Chantecler: This is a true dual-purpose breed with a proud Canadian heritage. I highly recommend Chanteclers to people who want to establish a practical and sustainable flock. This is a heavy and fast growing chicken for superior meat properties, and hens are good, reliable layers of large eggs. :: READ MORE::

Blue Orpington pullet-Hawthorn HillBlue Cochin: Clear blue feathers, each delicately laced with black. It's glamorous, but can be very difficult to achieve without losing other important traits along the way. I've been working on my Blue Cochin strain for well over a decade, and my tenacity is finally paying off....with beautiful results! :: READ MORE::

Black Cochin RoosterBlack Cochin: These majestic birds must be seen to be fully appreciated! They are ink-black and gleaming with iridescence, with the ruby red accents of combs and wattles. They are grand, elegant and equally impressive in the chicken yard, or at the most prestigious shows.


Rhode Island Red cockerelRhode Island Red: Bred-to-standard Reds are a far cry from the common commercial strains. Proper RIR's are solid-built, docile birds with very dark red, glossy feathers. I raise the Rose-Comb type which dates back to 1905, but have sadly become quite rare here in Canada.

Partridge Cochin HenPartridge Cochins are stately, striking and guaranteed to add flair to the backyard! Hens are adorned with an intricate feather pattern
which is precise and beautiful.
Note: I 've now discontinued raising this variety, but my flocks have been placed in the care of dedicated breeders. :: READ MORE::
