Specialty Broilers

Our Specialty Broilers are meat chickens that are known for their heritage-type gourmet flavor, which is preferred by discriminating consumers and many high-end restaurant chefs. An attractive broiler, they come in a variety of colors—red, grey, multicolored and white with red flecking.

These Specialty Broilers are slower growing meat birds than the Conventional Broiler. They are hearty breeds that do well in a pastured environment, but can also be raised in a house. Day-old chicks are available as Imperial, Royal, and Robust White and can be ordered as a straight run, or only males or only females. Fertile eggs for our specialty broilers can be ordered for school, family farms or for hatcheries seeking larger quantities.
