History: My birds came from Greenfire, Bresse Farms, and AZ Chickens. 18 birds in breeding flock, in 4 breeding groups.
Notes: I have had Bresse for over three years but haven’t been breeding them that long. I adore this breed and want to better them. I have colored and white Bresse and I am being very selective and culling what will not be breeding quality. I do keep some hens strictly for layers. My chickens are not perfect but I am working hard on breeding the best I can.
No NPIP. Is not shipping at this time. When this changes, updates will appear right here.

Phone: +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.
History: 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).

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."

Location: Elberta, UT 84626
Email: 3ffarmsut @ gmail. com (preferred points of contact are email and website)
Phone: +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.
History: 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."

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)
