Our Sapphire Gem will amaze you with its beautiful gray to light gray plumage. (Please note that gray to light gray plumage is referred to as blue or lavender feathering in the chicken industry.) This Czech hybrid breed is an excellent egg layer and a great forager. It does well in hot and cold climates and is a breed very close to the Old Andalusians. These docile, easy to care for birds are excellent layers with hens beginning to lay between 5-7 months of age. They are good winter layers that thrive in confinement or free ranged. This is a striking bird to add to your backyard flock!
