Breed Information

Where do I start with this variety? They have so many incredible features. This was the very first type of chicken that I wanted and it took me 20 years to find them in Canada. Aside from its mythical name, the Golden Phoenix is best known for its stunning long tail. The elegant, long, flowing tail is supported by strong feathers and is enhanced by a partial non-molting gene. However, their striking appearance isn't due solely to their incredible tail feathers. Their saddle feathers grow to impressive lengths and the birds hold their stature proudly.

This old breed was derived from the Onagadori breed in the late eighteen hundreds and is a medium-sized bird. Green Valley Acres is a proud member of the American Phoenix Breeders Association and hopes to support the future of this incredible breed in Canada.


Our Flock & Update for 2022 Season

After searching for 20 years, we were able to successfully locate two Phoenix trios in the spring of 2021 - one trio of Golden Phoenix and one trio of Silver Phoenix.

We hatched a good number of Golden Phoenix chicks in 2021 and will be using this large pool to split our Golden Phoenix into two separate lines in order to maintain as much genetic diversity as possible. In 2021, our selection process focused on removing any disqualifications, attention to health and vibrancy, and the distinguishing features of the tail. We ended up narrowing them down to the best 6% to keep as breeders for 2022 - I absolutely love this year's breeders and I can't wait to see what we're able to achieve in 2022!

For anyone who's looking to understand more about what makes a quality Phoenix, I highly recommend purchasing a copy of the Standard of Perfection here.


Availability for 2022

We're only breeding our best trios in 2022 so we will have limited availability. Preorder early because aside from fulfilling the preorders, we're not likely to have extra chicks during the season.

Hatching Eggs: Due to how much we narrowed down our Golden Phoenix breeding pens, we're only likely to have about 10-12 eggs/week available. Feel free to add more to your order if you'd like, but if you do I might need to ship them separately which will require a second shipping charge.
