Breed Information

This breed's claim to fame started in Bresse in France 500 years ago. This extraordinary bird has all white feathers, large red single combs, authentic blue legs, and a reputation for being a gourmet meat bird.

A quote from Greenfire Farms in the US: "Bresse belong to a genetically distinct chicken breed that metabolize feed in a certain way, distribute certain types of muscle across their frames in a certain pattern and at certain rates, and produce meat with a unique and distinct flavor. Bresse are known to have unusually light bones and thin skin."

These birds are fast-growing and quickly mature to 5-7lbs. They lay an average of 250 large white eggs per year and have calm personalities.

 

Our Flock & Update for 2022 Season

2021 was our first year with Bresses so we focused on creating a solid foundation for our flock, hatching out lots of chicks and only keeping the best 13% for our potential 2022 breeders.

With any fast-growing meat bird strong legs is generally a weakness so strong legs was our primary focus in selection this year. The Bresse is not recognized by the APA so our secondary focus in 2021 was breeding towards the french Bresse standard.


Availability for 2022

We're only breeding our best trios in 2022 to make sure that we maintain the strongest foundation for our flock so we will have limited availability this year. Preorder early because aside from fulfilling the preorders, we're not likely to have extra chicks during the season.

Hatching Eggs: Due to how selective we were with our breeders for the 2022 season, we're only likely to have 1 dozen 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. Order above by adding to your cart and placing your order. Please also click here for details on purchasing hatching eggs from us.
