Rustic Rambler Chicken

Starting at $1.75 each

Rustic Rambler Chickens from our Family of Hatcheries

Most dark-egg-laying breeds are not considered economical, since they have high appetites and low egg production—but that’s not the case with our hatcheries’ Rustic Rambler Chickens.

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.

A Rustic Rambler Wrap-Up

Not only are Rustic Rambler chickens excellent layers of gorgeous dark brown eggs, they will add personality to your flock and economy to your egg cartons. They offer the best of both worlds, and our family of hatcheries is thrilled to be able to bring that balance to your backyard. Choose your ship date today!

The Rustic Rambler’s Lineage

The Rustic Rambler’s parent stock is imported from the Czech Republic. It’s a cross between a Black Copper Maran male and a Barred Rock female. Both of these breeds lay unique, dark-colored eggs, meaning that our Rustic Ramblers do as well.

What to Expect from Rustic Rambler Chickens

These chickens are one of the highest-producing dark-egg layers, yielding 260-280 beautiful, dark brown, large to extra-large (62.5 grams) eggs per year. Chicks can be sexed by color at just one day of age. A full-grown hen will reach 4.8-5 pounds, and display a quiet temperament and jovial personality.

Order Your Rustic Ramblers Here

As you’ll see on the ordering chart above, our Rustic Ramblers are available as straight runs, meaning your order will contain both roosters and hens. However, we’re happy to separate by sex for an additional charge, as well as vaccinate your chicks against Marek’s Disease.

You’ll see that our Rustic Rambler chickens ship once per week. You will be prompted to choose your ship date at check-out. Any questions? As always, feel free to contact us.
