Blue Isbar

Isbars (pronounced ICE-bar), hail from Sweden.  They are a small bird, though not a bantam breed, and lay large green eggs.  The egg size is more impressive given their size.  They are excellent fliers, making them a good option for free ranging.  They are smart and train easily, though they tend to be wary of strangers.

The chicks will be a mix of black, blue, and splash.  This line of Isbars comes from Green Fire Farms.
