In the Pipeline

Over the past couple of years, Appleworm Orchard acquired a handful of very small breeding groups of these very rare breeds:

  • Ayam Cemani
  • Jubilee Orpington
  • Maline
  • Pavlovskaya
  • Twentse (a.k.a. Kraienkoppe)

We find each fascinating but also flawed.  We are now at work, hatching their eggs, growing out the hatchlings, and ruthlessly selecting the next generation.  We are making progress, but the size of our flocks and quality of our offspring are not yet sufficient to justify public sales.  As our flocks grow, we will update these pages with photos and notes to mark their progress.
