The Dutch Owlbeard

Greenfire Farms has imported for the first time into the United States a beautiful, ultra-rare chicken breed from Holland, the Dutch Owlbeard. This breed may be the oldest Dutch breed and is frequently depicted in paintings from as early as the 1500s. The Owlbeard is believed to be the foundational breed for a number of popular chicken breeds including Polish chickens.

The Owlbeard exists in a number of striking color patterns. Our birds are primarily in the lemon and black pattern. We have found this breed to be tame but active around the farm, and they can stay busy throughout the day pecking and scratching for food. Their eggs are white and usually large in size, and they seem immune to cold temperatures.

We have a very limited number of Owlbeards so we are certain we will quickly sell out of the entire 2022 hatch. Join our waitlist now if you want to be the first in your neighborhood (or the entire state) to own Owlbeards. Please email or call (866)-954-2968 to be added to our waiting list, a $100 deposit will be required to hold your spot in line. The chicks will be $99/day-old chick. Chicks will begin shipping soon.
