Juveniles & Adults

This our family’s favorite breed. We love their personalities and the appearance of both the birds and their eggs.

Silverudd’s Blue* chickens are stunning, friendly birds that lay gorgeous moss green eggs, often with speckles. The base color of the eggs varies from pale green to nearly olive and the speckles can be white or purplish brown. The “blue” in their name refers to the blue, black and splash feather colors of the birds. Silverudd’s lay 200-250 large eggs per year and have a smaller body size relative to their egg size.

Silverudd’s are excellent foragers who also do well in a confined area as they are thrifty, easy keepers. They are very alert to their surroundings. The roosters almost always have one eye on the sky and both sexes make a ruckus if anything threatens them. None of our hens have ever gone broody.

The two things we watch out for with Silverudd’s are frostbite in the winter on the male’s combs and foraging too far for both males and females. We have lost a number of Silverudd’s to predators since they forage far and wide and sometimes leave our perimeter fence, and end up where our guardian dogs can not protect them from predation.

We purchased our original breeding birds as day old chicks from Greenfire Farms.

*The correct name for the breed has been changed to Silverudd’s Blue instead of Isbar (pronounced “Ice-bar”), Isbar was apparently a misnomer, but you may still hear them referred to as Isbars.

Shipping dates are reflected on your order and can be viewed on your My Account page. Your order will list one of the following:

“Pre-order Shipping Date”

If your order shipping date was agreed upon prior to your order being placed, your order has guaranteed priority for this ship date. We are NOT currently offering pre-order shipping dates.

“Estimated Shipping Date”

Based on the orders we have received and how many eggs we anticipate, this is the date we expect to ship your order. If you placed your order before hatching egg season has begun, this will be blank until two weeks before the season starts, typically the first week in March. If you placed your order during hatching egg season, this may be blank for up to a week after you have submitted your order. We ship first come first served for each breed and will update our estimated dates after we finish shipping orders for the week. The estimated shipping date may change depending on how many eggs our hens provide and we will update your date if needed.

If you have not yet placed an order, please read this important message

Please do not place an order with us if you are not prepared to wait to receive your hatching eggs. While we do try to fill orders as quickly as possible, we are a small family farm focused on producing high quality chickens and hatching eggs. We are NOT a hatchery that will ship your order out the day it is received.

We only open up orders for as many hatching eggs as we expect to be able to fill about one month out. Once we have received about a month worth of orders, the hatching eggs will be listed as out of stock until we make progress on filling those orders. You can add your name to the waiting list on the product page if you would like to be notified when they are availble for ordering again. There is no obligation to buy if you’re on the waiting list.

For more information our policies, please review our Terms.

While we do our best to select the most well formed and clean eggs and care for them carefully, we cannot guarantee that every single egg will hatch. Typically we get a 85-100% hatch rate.
