Iowa Blue Chicken

The Iowa Blue Chicken is quite rare, but is a great dual purpose backyard breed. The breed was developed in Decorah, Iowa sometime during the first half of the twentieth century. Besides being a good producer of both meat and lightly tinted brown eggs, the Iowa Blue Chicken is a sex link chicken, meaning the gender of the chicks can be determined by color upon hatching. This can prove invaluable for farmers or chicken breeders needing to quickly sex baby chicks because the offspring of Iowa Blue Chickens crossed with other American Breeds like the White Plymouth Rock and the New Hampshire Red will also be sex link chickens.

Like many other backyard chicken breeds, the Iowa Blue Chicken is a good foraging breed and make excellent free range birds. The actual coloring of the Iowa Blue Chicken is not technically blue by poultry standards. The breed has a silvery white head and mostly brown plumage with laced with silver white coloring. The silver can appear with a bluish tint, but the roosters of this breed are silvery white and black with a penciled plumage pattern. The breed has a bright single red comb, and a bright red medium sized wattles and earlobes.

The Iowa Blue Chicken will lay a good number of eggs and will also go broody. The breed is docile and will make a great addition to any backyard or barnyard chicken flock.
