Blackbird is a specialty animal husbandry project managed by Bluebird Canyons Farms focusing on breeding and raising Black Copper Marans chickens in an “animal centered” environment. A heritage poultry breed, Black Copper Marans are believed to be descended from the Langshan Chicken, considered threatened by the Livestock Conservancy. They produce rich chocolate brown eggs and fine quality meat. Our birds are bred, hatched and raised on the same farm without the use of antibiotics or synthetic hormones. They are allowed to range and forage to encourage natural behavior, fed high quality natural feed, and protected from predators. Animal welfare is at the center of this project and Blackbird chickens are managed in accordance with the Global Animal Partnership’s 5-Step Animal Welfare Standards. Our poultry is managed in accordance with Step 5 and the health and happiness of the birds prove the success our approach.
Blackbird, 100% Black Copper Marans eggs are available seasonally to our members. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
