History: 2020 was our first year breeding the color varieties of American Bresse. Those foundation birds were purchased from a local private breeder. We will be breeding the white variety for the first time in 2023. This line of whites come to us from Crazy Clucker homestead who has a direct line from Greenfire Farm as well as a very nice line of their own. 
Notes: I do not ship. I hatch in small batches from February - August utilizing seven dedicated breeding coops for pairs or trios only. Emphasis on the standard of perfection (SOP) in whites, black and blue. I retain only those with excellent vigor, growth rate, laying ability (both egg size and color) and table qualities.

Jenn at North Star Farms, 2/2022

North Star Farms
Location: North Carolina 
History: Our lines are 95% from Keith Loeffler (now retired). The other 5% hails directly from Greenfire Farms.
Notes: Our focus is to maintain the meat qualities and egg laying potential of this breed. We are homesteaders and have found Bresse to be the perfect chicken for our needs. We solely raise, breed, cull, and ship BRESSE. We are breeders, not multipliers. We cull for weight gain, type, and egg laying capacity first. We strive for white feathers, blue legs, wide bodies, and wide heads. We look to achieve an overall excellent bird with focus on homestead qualities first and foremost. We keep broody hen qualities and protective (but not mean) roosters. We do NOT ship hatching eggs or sex our chicks.
For all sales and communication please see our website.
NPIP: We are NPIP certified and continue to certify as such. We are AI, Pullorum, and Typhoid CLEAN as of July 2022.

Email: SonniJos.chicken @ gmail. com
+1 (919) 749 - 5881; +1 (339) 240 - 9731
Details: Foundation birds are from Bresse Farms, plus a rooster from North Star Farms (Greenfire stock). Has been raising ABC since 2021; has 14 birds in 2 breeding groups.
 I started working with chickens as an FFA project in my freshman year in high school (some years ago).
Flock Goals: My primary goal is table presentation. A well defined, robust but streamlined body, the way American Bresse are supposed to look. I am also breeding for egg production and finally the vivid slate legs and white ear lobes. The growth rate and size of my birds are spot on. I’m addressing some challenges that weren’t visible in my original breeding flock (there’s more to consistency than meets the eye).
Notes: NPIP 55-1817. (5/6/2022)

 Joepniewskijr @ gmail. com
History: Foundation birds are from Sunny Acres Farm. Has been raising American Bresse since 2021. Has a flock of 20 birds in three breeding groups. "I've been working with chickens for 7 years now. I like to focus on 1 breed at a time. I raised Icelandic chickens for 5 years. I do enjoy learning about and working with chickens. I feel I did a great job with the Icelandic chickens but I felt the American Bresse was truly a better dual-purpose bird."
Flock Goals: Good size meat birds and egg layers. Breeding to the standard is progressing; pursuing improvements to size, body structure, and tail carriage. Combs are good. "My flock are awesome layers."
Notes: NPIP 31-1319. (5/6/2022)

American Bresse Chicken Breeders in Utah

3F Farms (Sierra Ford)
Location: Elberta, UT 84626
Email: 3ffarmsut @ gmail. com (preferred points of contact are email and website)
+1 (775) 934 - 4256
Details: Foundation birds are from Bresse Farms and Greenfire. Has been raising ABC since 2021; has 30 birds in 3 breeding groups.
 10 years raising and showing poultry starting through 4-H; has continued to keep a variety of birds since then, meat production breeds mainly.
Flock Goals: "My main goal is to work towards exhibition, while trying to keep the birds true to the nature of a dual purpose animal. I would like to continue to breed towards the standard. We are getting darker eyes and consistent dark blue legs, and are breeding for white ear lobes. Our female combs may be too erect for the standard at the moment. I keep birds with milder temperaments. I am also on the voting side of a slightly larger bird that the French standard. We currently fall within the parameters of hens at an average of 6 lbs and our cocks at 7.5 lbs and will select for increasing mature weight to 8 lbs. All our extras that don't meet my flock standards fill our freezer." 
Notes: NPIP 87-195.
I have a degree in Animal and Veterinary Sciences and I hope to continue my studying of genetics through my birds and work towards physical traits. i.e. egg weights, bird weights and coloring. I am also very interested in continuing to educating others about meat production and particularly through properly finishing of birds. I think the Bresse have set a great platform to do so."

B2C2 Farms 
Location: Nickelsville, VA 24271
Facebook: - Messenger is preferred means of contact
Email: b2c2farms @ hotmail. com
History: Has been raising American Bresse since 2019. Lines are from Greenfire 2017, with a few females hatched from Goldfeather Farms in 2018 (an earlier Greenfire line) that were integrated over the years. We have 18 birds in 2 groups. 
NPIP: VA 52-410
Notes: B2C2 Farms is a small, family owned farm and private breeder of Bresse (along with Black Copper Marans, Lavender Orpington, Isabel Ameraucana, and Serama).  We are not a large hatchery. We are thrilled that an American Bresse standard is coming to fruition! As of 2022, we are on generation 3 with our Bresse flocks. We cull for defects (such as dark feathers popping up, tan oval or misshapen eggs, squatty bodies). Bresse are truly the ultimate dual purpose bird, in our experience. Give us a call or find us on Facebook to learn more. (4/22/2022)
