The Aquila Chicken, a Dual-Purpose Breed and Capable Egg Layer

Most dual-purpose breeds are just average egg layers. Not true with the Aquila chicken. They lay more eggs per year than the average dual-purpose breed. The Aquilas from our family of hatcheries are well-suited to a variety of conditions and are also excellent meat producers.

In 2012, Art started helping out at Freedom Ranger Hatchery. It didn’t take long for the newest hatchery to be added to the family—initially known as Art’s Hatchery, and now Hillside Hatchery. Specializing in egg-layer breeds, the newest of our hatcheries is already well-established, providing high-quality birds for sale…just like the rest of our family of hatcheries at Freedom Ranger.

The Well-Rounded, Profitable Aquila Chicken

When a chicken farmer hears about a dual-purpose breed that lays up to 280 eggs per year, we get that farmer’s attention. That’s because most dual-purpose chickens lay less than 200 eggs annually. The Aquila chicken is special in its egg-laying capabilities and its friendly, calm personality.

The Aquila’s Lineage

Just like the Sagitta, the Aquila chicken was developed by Henry Saglio, using Rhode Island Reds, Black Australorps, and a bit of White Plymouth Rock.

Aquila Chickens’ Outstanding Features

As mentioned above, Aquila chickens are excellent egg layers, providing 250-280 light-brown, large to extra-large eggs annually. The Aquila shares characteristics with the Sagitta Chicken, but is mostly an iridescent black color with a small amount of red tint in its feathers. When Aquila hens are 16 weeks old, they will weigh 5 to 5.5 pounds. In just 12 weeks, cockerels will reach 5 pounds. Their hardiness and calm demeanors make them great additions to any farm.
