Golden Buff Chickens are a leader in the brown egg market and are by far the most popular breed we sell. Golden Buffs are known by many other names, such as Golden Comet, ISA Brown, Cinnamon Queen, Red Sex Link, and Red Star. Our customers favor this breed for its large eggs and quiet temperament. Golden Buffs are a sex-linked hybrid, which means the sex of the day old baby chicks can be determined by their feather color when they hatch. Our line of Golden Buffs have Rhode Island Red and Leghorn in their heritage. Mature hens have a soft buff-red color and roosters are white with darker wing, neck, and tail feathers.
You can expect around 395 large to x-large brown eggs in 72 weeks from each of these hens. Golden Buffs mature at around 20 weeks, thrive in a free range environment and are cold tolerant.
Average mature weight: roosters 5 to 6 lbs., hens 4 lbs.
