AL - Rare Silver Campines

by Tin Star Poultry
(Tuscaloosa, Alabama)


Standard Bred Silver Campines are very rare.
Most consider them to be Critically endangered. They are light large fowl, bred for their lovely porcelain white eggs, fine textured and flavorful meat, and striking beauty. They were once known as "The Everyday Layer" and although the breed has been severely neglected for decades, I have successfully improved production in my line, and continue to strive for birds which live up to that title. They have a great feed to egg conversion ratio, and will forage for the majority of their diet, if allowed to do so. They thrive on fresh air and free range, but will tolerate confinement.

These birds are busy, friendly, and alert. They prefer not to be handled, but are not fearful of people. My Campines are the first to come running for treats and will fly to my arm or knee if it gives them the advantage. I find them curious, chatty, and beautiful. They have a striking appearance with their bright white hackles and bright red single combs, wattles, and faces. Add to this a black to beetle green body traversed by silver penciling or barring, and you have a bird of undeniable aesthetic appeal.

Although my line is far from "perfection," they have been selectively bred with the Standard as my guide. The males are hen feathered, with good type, and the correct eye, earlobe, and leg colors, as they should be.

I sell a very limited number of hatching eggs in the late spring. I will ship eggs within the U.S. but do not ship chicks or adult birds. I sell a few adult pairs locally in the fall, or I will deliver to shows that I attend. You can contact me at lmarshal@tuscaloosa.com
