Silverudd's Blue (Isbar)

Silverudd's Blue (formerly known as the Blue Isbar), hail from Sweden. They were one of several breeds created by Martin Silverudd.  They are a light weight hen which lays 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 content hen makes a singing noise, like a "trill" which is beautiful and unique.

The chicks will be a mix of black, blue, and splash.  Our Blues are from first generation imports, with some second generation imports bred in for heartiness.  We are working on breeding to the Standards of Perfection while still maintaining a healthy flock.
