Plymouth Rock, Blue
a.k.a. Blue Rock​















​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
st of Paris.
This old- time favorite heritage dual purpose breed is an excellent layer of brown eggs (up to 300 extra large brown eggs per year beginning at 18-20 weeks of age). They are sweet, calm, docile and pleasant to be around. 
Blue Plymouth Rock chickens are curious and always checking their surrounding environment. Although they do well when confined, they are happier free-ranging and have the ability to perform well under less than ideal conditions - like cold weather..
 
These lovely birds come in several colour varieties and now this new variety, Blue (Blue variety does not breed true. chicks are autosexing, with the roosters slightly lighter in color than the hens). The Blue Plymouth Rock is a vigorous breed imported from the Czech Republic. It was developed by crosses of a native Czech Andalusian Male and a Plymouth Barred Rock Female. Average mature weight: Roosters 7 to 7 1/2 lbs., Hens 6 lbs. 
The standard weight for a Rock hen is 4.5 lbs. to 5.5 lbs., while a rooster can weigh 6-6.5 lbs.

Day old chicks are available in VERY limited quantities through Beau Peep Farms in  2021, with ONE ONLY hatch date this year, and that is March 31st. Order early to avoid disappointment.
