Welcome to RKR POULTRY FARMS: BREEDS

RKR POULTRY FARMS breeds good show quality birds. we stay true to the breed and color standards for all our birds.

We have an assortment of breeds at our farms. Each breed is housed separately. It is important to us that we maintain as closely as possible the purity of "True Breeds' in our flock of birds. Each breed listed has a page with more details about that breed.

RKR POULTRY FARMS was started with the purchase on 3 Ameraucana Chickens. We since have added 3 more Ameraucana Chickens purchased from Paul Smith in Texas. These 3 chickens are show quality Ameraucana chickens. They have done well at Poultry shows in 2010 and 2011. We have added another bloodline of show quality Ameraucana chickens from Wayne Meredith. Our farm has since grown to several breeds (Ameraucana, Araucana, Ancona, EE, OEGB, Buttercup, Sumatra, Cochin, d'Anver, Houdan, Silkie, White Faced Black Spanish, Buckeye, Andalusians) and varieties within the breeds. We are seeking to settle on a few breeds down the line that we feel like have obtained the standards for show quality that we would want to continue in the breeding process with.

We decided to reduce the breeds by selling the entire breed of OEGB, Buttercups and Spanish to another student in the poultry show industry which is allowing us to focus more on the breeds we have left. We will be continuing on with Ameraucana, Araucana, Sumatra, Cochin, and d'Aners breeds for sure. We decided to reduce our d'Anver line by giving 2 pullets and 1 cockerels to a 4-H student. We finally chose to sell the remaining d'Anver breed to a FFH teacher who will continue with the breeding we had begun. We have added Blue Andalusian to our breeding program and look forward to the chicks sometime this fall. We chose to reduce even further by selling the White Silkies. It was sad to see Puff Ball go to her new home but it was a choice we had to make making room for Silver Phoenix.

We have began the new year with the following chicks being added to our flock: Sumatra, Phoenix, Ameraucana, Araucana, Andalusian, and Cochin. There are a few eggs left in the incubator.

We have narrowed our breed selection to a few breeds in order for us to be able to concentrate on the quality of each breed. We are now raising the following breeds: Ameraucana, Andalusian and Cochin (LF and Bantam).
