They are rare; only about 2,000 of them exist today. The Pita Pinta is represented in four color varieties, and at Greenfire Farms we imported the two most flamboyant of those varieties, the black mottled (Pinta Negra) and red mottled (Pinta Roxa). These are large, hardy birds that lay an abundance of cream-colored eggs. Their gentle disposition makes them a farm favorite.

Hatching Eggs - When hatching eggs from the red variety, you will want to cull the chicks that hatch solid, light yellow. We have observed that chicks that hatch like that don't develop into birds with red mottling and are instead solid white. Birds that lack mottling shouldn't be used in your breeding flock, so chicks that hatch solid, light yellow should be culled.

The merits of every bird should be assessed as they reach adulthood.
