Sunnyside Jumbo Broilers
Our fast-growing jumbo broilers, when managed properly, should reach 6-7 lbs in only 8 weeks. These birds are known for their strong legs, plump breasts, excellent feed conversion and livability.
This slower-growing broiler will take 9-11 weeks to finish and should reach 5-6 lbs in that time. Perfect for pasturing and “chicken tractors”.
Recognizable by their contrasting black and gray plumage, the dual purpose Barred Rock has been a favorite brown-egg layer on American farmsteads for over a century.
Rhode Island Reds
This cherry-colored beauty from the Northeast has contributed to the development of many of today’s commercial brown egg hybrids. Another great option for both eggs and meat.
A traditional English breed that's both a dependable layer of brown eggs and a fine, white-skinned table bird. They're striking orange-buff plumage will set them apart from the rest of your flock.
Golden Laced Wyandottes
Developed in Wisconsin in the 19th century, this dual-purpose brown-egg layer is noted for their stunning combination of gold and black plumage along with their frostbite-resistant rose combs.
A centuries-old French breed known as a dependable layer of cream-tinted eggs. Muffed faces, feathered legs, a 5th toe and contrasting colors of the males and females set these apart from the rest.
This native of Italy brings you excellent white-egg production in a beautifully colored package. Hens are penciled in straw and black while the males look very similar to the rooster on the box of cornflakes!
Our Brown hens will produce large volumes of highquality, brown-shelled eggs starting as early as 18 weeks of age. The female is known for her quiet temperament and hardiness. Males are lighter in color and make excellent fryers.
A Sunnyside original- the ultimate dual-purpose hybrid. The females are excellent brown egg layers and males should finish at over 6 pounds in about 20 weeks. The preferred bird for many ethnic markets!
These hybrids are similar in size and production capabilities to our Special Blacks, just with a red plumage instead of black. Supplies are limited.
Our premium producer of pearl white eggs. Pullets are ready to lay at 20 weeks and you can expect excellent feed efficiency, livability, and shell quality from these birds.
Sunnyside is excited to now offer the minatures of the poultry world - Bantams! Whether for pleasure or for show, these brids make for a fun addition to any farmstead. Breeds available include Silkies (Blue, Black, Splash, and White), Golden Sebright, Ameraucana (assorted colors) and Spangled Old English Game. Assortments are hatchery choice and all bantams are sold as straight run only. Minimum order = 20 for shipping.
Sunnyside Rainbow Eggers
Don’t mistake these for AraucanasRainbow Eggers are a colorful collection of commercial layer strains from Europe that will fill your egg basket with green, blue, chocolate brown and cream-tinted eggs. Supplies are limited.
These ducks make for an excellent addition to your pond and have a hardiness not found in other domesticated ducks. While they will dress out much smaller than other ducks, they do have a more traditional, "wilder" taste due to their preference to forage.
Our most popular duck, the giant White Pekin is the premier meat-producing duck available. Hardy and fast growing, Pekins should finish out at 7 lbs. in 8 to 9 weeks. These snow white ducks will dress out nicely. A very attractive meat bird.
While Rouens are similar in size to our White Pekins, they carry a plumage similar to that of a Mallard. Drakes will mature to be grey with green heads while females carry a brown penciled pattern. The traditional Rouen duck has been a staple on French farmsteads, and tables, for centuries.
This medium duck matures quickly and is our most prolific egg-laying breed. Males will mature to over 4 lbs and can be identified by their olive- colored heads. Females will be smaller in size and should begin to lay eggs at 5-6 months of age.
Broad Breasted White
If it’s a fast-growing turkey with great livability and excellent feed conversion you seek, the Broad Breasted White is the one for you. Females will grow to 16-18 lbs. in 14-16 weeks, while Toms should finish out at 30 lbs. in 18-20 weeks.
Broad Breasted Bronze
While these beautiful turkeys resemble their wild cousins in plumage, their size and confirmation are more in line with our Broad Breasted Whites. Our traditional Bronze does excellent in free range and other alternative systems as they make great foragers.
