Sumatra Chicken Breed Information

Cackle Hatchery offers two color varieties (blue and black) of the Sumatra Chicken . The Sumatra Chicken has a long flowing tail, graceful carriage and was originally bred as a fighting chicken. The Sumatra Chicken does not do well in close confinement and prefer to roost as high as they can get.

The Blue Sumatra Chicken can come in different shades of blue, dark blue/black and splash feathering. The Blue Sumatra Chicken photos as shown are the blue color you want to select out of your entire flock to show... This (blue color) is a very rare color of the Sumatra chicken breed and will attract a lot of attention at poultry shows. There are very few breeders of the blue Sumatra in the United States and very few have been breeding them as long as Cackle Hatchery/ Breeding Farms.
