Mcconnell'S Black Java's sells only Black Java hatching eggs to Homesteaders, Backyard farmers, and Preservationists in the lower 48 states.
The Black Java
The first reference to the Black Java was around 1800. The Java is considered to be one of the oldest breeds of American Poultry. Meaning they are of American origin and note as their name implies from the exotic island of Java. They are big birds, with roosters wieghing about 10-12 pounds. Hens are good layers most of the year. They are broody and make nice mothers to their young. Black Java's are some of the calmest and docile of all the big chicken breeds. They will do well in a free ranged environment but, also stand confinement very well.
I first became aware of the plight of the Black Java chicken in 2002. Then, in 2012 I was able to obtain hatching eggs of my own. From there the rest is as they say history. I have been raising this breed ever since and my mission is to bring this original 'Farm Chicken' Back to prominence.
For more information on the Java chicken. Visit the American Livestock Conservancy. Or Garfield Farms.
