Sapphire Gem Chickens, Sold in Quantities of 10 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No issues, healthy chicks ready at Post Office I took a risk ordering live chicks during cold weather, but was pleasantly surprised at how healthy they all were at arrival. Yes, as others stated, they look more gray than blue, but that’s really not my focus. I’d definitely order this way again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Off to a great start! I received 12 birds (pullets) from the 11/19 hatch. All arrived alive and are very robust. I'm looking forward to seeing these girls grow out and start to lay.

Live in South Central Oklahoma, how does this breed hold up to temperatures of around 95 degrees in summer and some below freezing in winter?

Asked by: ABach
The Sapphire Gem holds up well to all conditions as it is bred from a sturdy breeding stock combination that manages warm and cold weather.

How many females and male chickens will I be getting?

I would like to know if the Saphire Gems do well with other types of chickens. I was considering buying ISA Browns as well. 

Asked by: New2Chicks
Sapphire Gems have a reputation as a good bird to pair with other genetics. The ISA Brown does as well so those two birds would work well together

Do you know what type of personality they have or the quality of eggs? I have 5 buff orpingtons and 4 tetra browns... All very docile, but a few of the older birds (orpingtons) are a little mean to the new girls.

Asked by: StarsFan
Our Sapphire Gem come from genetics proven to be gentle. As you state, some birds may stray from the true genetics (like all of us) and appear a little grumpier than others :)

How does one tell the difference between the male and female chicks if these are auto sexed?

Asked by: danbec
There is a color variation to each male and female that allows detection for a male and female

How do they handle cold weather? (Colorado)

Asked by: StarsFan
Sapphire Gems handle the cold weather well as the genetics originate from that climate. They are sturdy to handle both cold and warm elements
