We started our Black Copper breeding program in 2014 with over 85 birds culled down to the 25 best and darkest egg producing pullets. Currently we are working with two lines of Black Coppers. Fancy Chick line (Wade Jeane, Bev Davis and Helen Byers). Also the lovey Greenfire Farms Line. In 2016 we crossed males from our darkest GF line of eggs, over our Fancy Chick line Hens to produce large genetically diverse chicks. We continue to select for a top of the line product in both type and egg color.
