Learn More about our Partridge Chantecler Chicks
Old Time Partridge Chantecler chicks are selectively bred for breed characteristics, according to the American Poultry Association (APA) Standard of Perfection and the writings of the Partridge Chantecler founder, Dr Wilkinson, as well as for a balance between egg and meat production. We participate in the NPIP program (participant #23-601), our flock is certified by the American Poultry Association.
The foundation for our breeding plan is health, vigor and good temperament - only healthy/vigorous birds are in our flock and there is no room on our farm for unpleasant birds.
We select for structural soundness and production characteristics, using the Livestock Conservancy Heritage Chicken Manual as a guide, then use the APA Standard of Perfection along with guidance from our mentors and the writings found in our extensive library of books and articles for the breed specific and finer points of selection. Our breeding pens are set up to minimize faults being duplicated in male and female (no bird is perfect).
Only eggs of good quality that are 1 3/4 to 2 1/4 oz are set in the incubator (aim for an average of 24 oz per dozen). We feed a custom, nutrient dense breeder ration made with non-GMO grains for hatchability, the health of our flock, and a good start to their offspring. Our breeding flock is also free range/on pasture within poultry net paddocks.
