Big Brown Eggs

Big Brown Eggs

Our brown egg layers are from the original strains from Parks Poultry Farm which was located in Altoona, PA. Parks Poultry Farm was America's oldest Poultry Breeding Establishment and scored at the top of many of the Random Sample Laying Tests in the US that were held annually. Not only were they one of the top egg producing poultry farms, they ranked first for livability in many of the tests. Their birds lived longer. Also they were known for laying larger eggs. If you have our brown egg layers you have big eggs. They're rugged enough to keep living and laying--even if the housing accomodations happen to be rather humble

Sil go Link

An excellent dual purpose bird known as the "little red hen with the white underwear." Lays a nice large brown egg. Buy them straight run-for-good layers and good fryers. An extremely tame bird, easy to work with. Pullets are mostly red with some whites, blacks, and spots, with the cockerels mostly white. These cockerels are very similar to White Rocks.
