Jaerhon chickens

Here are our norwegian jaerhon chickens. we added this breed to our flock a few months ago. At this point I have to say that these are the first chickens we are not totally happy with.  we started with two dozen of these but only 8 have made out to adulthood. They don't seeme as sturdy as other heritage breeds.another problem is these are the first roosters that have been aggressive. One bit kaelyn on the nose while she was carrying it
We will keep the hens but the rosters will go on the freezer as soon as they grow a bit.

  1. I have a breeding pair of Norwegian Jaerhon chickens. My experience was quite different. I find them a personable bird so far and I plan to take the next step and breed a few.
