Silverrudd's Blue (Isbar) or SIlverudd's Bla, formerly known as the Blue Isbar or Isbar Bla. Isbar is actually a misnomer for this breed as they are not now nor have they have been barred. SIlverudd's are a rare and exotic imported bird from Sweden, created by Mr.Silverudd. The roosters are very flashy and the hens lay shades of medium sized green eggs. Eggs can be olive to a mossy green to a blue color.
Silverudd's can be free ranged and also do well in a confined area. They adapt to any surrounding quite well. Feed ratio is excellent. They are very alert birds and therefor do well in an outdoor environment. We had a couple of hens brood chicks for the first time this year and they are amazing mothers. The chicks stayed with in the flock and the roosters helped in rearing them into adulthood. We have been working with the Isbars for many years. We are working towards a standard that creator Mr.Silverudd was trying to perhaps obtain. He had passed away with the breed not completed.
***We have 1st and 2nd GFF imports. There is no standard for this breed. The 1st import had vitality and fertility issues. To keep the breed alive, we added 2nd import which added different issues but instilled what was necessary to keep them moving forward. We cull for key issues such as yellow legs, brown eggs layers and large body type. This does not mean you will receive perfect birds. If you are wanting ready to breed perfect birds, this may not be the right choice for you. If you are wanting a beautiful flock of birds to enjoy or want to join the debilitation of this breed, then this is an excellent choice! ****
