If you are looking for a beautiful bird to decorate your flock, the Blue Sumatra is for you. Please note that when you order any blue variety from Purely Poultry, you may also receive chicks with black or splash patterns as well.
Sumatras are a very old breed, and it is believed that they are somehow related to jungle fowl. It is also suspected that they are the ancestors of several modern breeds, including Old English Game Fowl and Silkies.
Sumatras retain several "wild" characteristics. They do not like to be confined in small cages and they are considered good fliers. While Sumatras are most definitely chickens, they are often compared to pheasants, partially because of their long tail feathers and partially because they just have an untamed look to them.
Blue Sumatras are a bluish-gray color. As with all blue varieties of chickens, any clutch will include chicks with blue, black, and splash patterns. That is just the nature of genetics, but it makes the Blue Sumatra somewhat rarer than the Black Sumatra.
