Chocolate Copper Queens Details

Chocolate Copper Queens


These dark-feathered hybrid beauties are a cross between the highly-sought-after Black Copper Marans and a Barred Plymouth Rock.  Know what that means?  Lots and lots of those beautiful darker shades of eggs, that's what!  We think you're gonna love em! These ladies make sweet additions to your flock and their eggs add that special farm-fresh appeal to every carton! 

From copper to chocolate brown and every speckled shade in-between, each one of these hens will lay up to 300 eggs per year.  Each hen will lay a variety of colors throughout her lifetime, which is why they are so unique!  The Males are spectacular looking, as well, but crossing them will not breed true.  

Temperament: The Chocolate Copper Queens have the varied demeanor that is true of most hybrids, but they all tend to be friendly and active.  Maybe because of their  heavy laying and maybe just part of their heritage, they can be quite loud.  But, if your neighbors don't mind or are out of ear-shot,  the Chocolate Copper Queens will be a lovely addition to your backyard flock for eggs, meat, or breakfast-producing pets!  

History:  The Chocolate Copper Layer is Purely Poultry's version of the popular Dominant Copper breed that is imported from the Czech Republic. They are a hybrid answer to the demand for dark egg layers and do what they are bred to do.

Color Description: Chocolate Copper Queens are sex-linked, meaning that males and females are colored differently from hatching age. 

APA Class: Not recognized; hybrid.

Conservation Status: Not applicable.

Weight: Cockerel 7 lbs, Pullet 5.5 lbs.
