These are all Marek's vaccinated females.

The Golden Buff isn't a recognized breed, but a hybrid. It does not matter the name, however, as this is a friendly, cold hardy, and perfect dual purpose breed for anyone. It is said that the Golden Buff Chicken has a wonderful feed to egg ratio. Who can beat that?

Production: Golden Buff hens produce large brown eggs. A typical hen lays five eggs or more a week, with an annual production of approximately 250 eggs. Pullets mature early and start laying at approximately 5 months of age. Broodiness has been bred out of the Golden Buff. Because this is a hybrid breed, Golden Buffs bred to each other will give you an array of colors.

Temperament: Because they're such friendly, calm chickens, golden buffs are a good choice for people just starting out with poultry. This is a quiet bird that does well either free-range or in confinement, making it suitable for the city or subdivision.

History: Golden Buff Chickens are a modern day egg laying strain from hybrid breeding that produces fast body development and fast egg production.

Colors: The golden buff is a sex-linked breed, so only the females will show the buff hue. Roosters are white with light reddish-brown tones around the neck and wings and on the tail feathers. The great advantage of a sex-linked breed is that there's no wondering whether it's male or female when they hatch.

Livestock Conservancy Status: Not applicable since this is a hybrid cross.

Standard Weights: Rooster 7-8 lbs, Hen 5-6 lbs, Cockerel 7 1/2 lbs, Pullet 5 1/2 lbs. Started Birds will weigh significantly less.

Classification: American Poultry Association Class: Not recognized
