American Bresse Chickens



La Bresse chickens are reputed to be the best-tasting chickens in the world. Our chicks are from GreenFire Farms, Sunbird Farmsin CA and recently from Canada. 

This breed is truly a dual purpose breed that thrives on free range and gains weight on grass it seems. They also lay 250 + eggs per year!

They are a hardy breed that doesn’t have the problems of conventional cornish hybrids because they never get to big for their legs and can reproduce.

About 500 years ago, Bresse (rhymes with "bless") emerged as a distinct chicken breed in the former province of Bresse in eastern France. In France and indeed throughout the world, they have earned the reputation of having a unique and exquisite flavor. 


There are four varieties of Bresse: white, black, blue, and gray. The white variety is the best known and is used almost exclusively for meat production. The white Bresse is instantly recognized with its large red comb, bright white feathers, and steel-blue legs. (As newly hatched chicks their legs are yellow.) 

We have hatching eggs for sale at $30/doz and chicks for sale at $15 each (pre-order chicks 30 days in advance, local pick up only). Buyer pays shipping and all other expenses.  Email us if you are interested in purchasing any or have any questions.
