Valley Hatchery proudly offers the Ginger Red Standard Old English Chicks, an exquisite breed that is a testament to the rich heritage of poultry. While this striking color variety isn’t recognized by the APA, it stands out with its beautiful red/gold and black feathers, complemented by green legs and a single comb. These features make the Ginger Red a dazzling addition to any flock.

The Standard Old English is one of the oldest chicken breeds, known for their indomitable spirit, remarkable longevity, and a history steeped in gameness. These birds embody the essence of resilience and vitality, traits that have influenced the development of many other chicken breeds. The males are typically dubbed for show purposes, enhancing their streamlined appearance.

Despite not being renowned for their egg-laying prowess, Ginger Red hens are consistent layers, contributing about 120 white eggs per year. They are excellent mothers, known for their tendency to go broody, and can display protective behaviors. These chickens are not only ornamental but also practical, with good muscle meat distribution making them suitable as table birds. Their longevity is impressive, with some living up to 15 years.

The Ginger Red variety, like other Old English Chickens, possesses a lively, active nature. They can be flighty and somewhat noisy, often showing a desire to explore beyond the coop. These characteristics make them well-suited to free-range environments, where they exhibit remarkable adaptability and predator evasion skills. These hardy birds can thrive in various climates, although it’s important to manage multiple males carefully due to their tendency to be territorial.

Valley Hatchery’s Ginger Red Standard Old English Chicks are not just chickens; they’re a piece of living history, a blend of beauty, resilience, and spirited charm. Ideal for poultry enthusiasts who appreciate both the aesthetic and practical qualities of their flock, these chicks bring a splash of color and a wealth of character to any setting.
