Our Sapphire hens are also known as: Emeralds/ Araucana Hybrid
Our littlest hens, although still classed as "large fowl", the Sapphire, are very attractive with quite an unusual look. They are predominantly white to pale grey in colour, often with black, grey or brown splashes. Their Araucana lineage means that many of these birds are "rumpless" in that they have no or very little tail. Some will also feature ear tuffs, beards or crests, giving them a very unique and slightly comical appearance. Our Sapphire hens have a 98% chance of laying a blue/green egg. Sapphires have a slight frame and are quite quick when young, but are also friendly birds with a gentle temperament and an inquisitive nature.
Sapphires will lay approximately 260-280 pretty blue coloured eggs per year.
Our fully vaccinated Sapphire hens are £25 each. We are taking reservations for this breed now. To be added to the reservation list please email us here with details on the breeds of hens you would like, total number of hens and a contact number.
