Madison Chickens Details

Madison Chickens are a hybrid chicken that has been bred for sustainable and productive egg and meat production. Beyond their productively, these birds have stunningly gorgeous coloring - with varied patterned feathers and all shades of all colors, no two Madison birds look alike. 

We had a hard time thinking up a name for this new type of chicken. And we decided on Madison. We love the name Madison - it reminds us of the Daryl Hannah in the 80's movie, Splash! But it is also the name of the capital of Wisconsin, our closest urban center. We love visiting Madison - it is a beautiful city with tons of diverse cultural and exciting things to do. Madison is also a city that has permitted citizens to raise chickens for a very long time, even when lots of other cities were outlawing them. So we love Madison for that reason as well and decided to name these diverse and exciting chickens after this great city.

You'll only be able to get Madison Chickens from us here at Purely Poultry! 

Madison Chickens have red single combs and pretty wattles. Roosters are particularly brilliant in the patterns and colors of their feathers. They are hardy and easy to care for birds, and get along well with other birds and in most farm environments. Madison Chickens would be ideal chickens for homesteads and backyard flocks, for pasture-raising, and for larger production farms. The Madison is a heavier bird, and will not roost more than 1-2 feet off the ground. 

Production: Madison Chickens were designed for production, and we promise that they will not disappoint. Females are good layers of large brown eggs. Males will reach a marketable weight of 5 pounds or more in about 12-20 weeks. These birds won't have the super-fast growth rate of Cornish Cross but will mature faster than most heritage breeds. Madison Chickens can do well in both pastured environments and more confined settings. 

Temperament: Madison Chickens are relatively easy-going but are also active and energetic birds. Their personalities can be quite diverse matching the diversity of their coloring. 

History: The Madison Chicken is a newly developed hybrid, bred to introduce strong and healthy new genetics as well as attain great duel production status.

APA Class: Not recognized.

Conservation Status: Not applicable.

Body Type: Madison Chickens are medium-sized chickens - seemingly like a combination of Sussex and Rhode Island Red in general conformation. They are sturdy and upright fowl and do well in all climates. 

Weight: Cockerel 4.5 lbs, Pullet 3.5 lbs, Rooster 10 lbs, Hens 7.5 - 8 lbs
