At McMurray Hatchery we have been working on some new breeds. It is quite the process as we have exact standards that need to be met.

First, we research breeds that we feel our customers will enjoy. We only sell to poultry enthusiasts who expect the best quality egg layers or meat birds, so we locate and work with a NPIP certified breeder. Then the fun part starts. We purchase quality chicks to start our breeder flock. This is a several-generation process as we need to ensure the progeny fits the same standards as the sire.

We are building our flock of Cream Legbars (see image below), and are including this breed as one of our Free Rare Chick selection. We are on our third generation, making sure these live up to our name and their fabulous auto-sexing background. We currently do not offer this breed for individual purchase at this time, as we continue to allow our flocks to mature. But, you may just receive one of these awesome rare breed chicks in the Special Assorted Bargain or as the free chick in your next order.

We are currently working on several other new breeds for 2018. Stay tuned for more updates.
