The Columbian Rock chicken was recognized as a distinct breed and admitted to the American Standard of Perfection in 1910. The Columbian Rock chicken is a good dual purpose chicken and a member of the Plymouth Rock family. A great American poultry heritage breed that grandma and grandpa would have on the farm. They lay large brown eggs and this color variety of the Plymouth Rock chicken is hard to find and our blood line should show well at poultry shows.

Many people who like this breed of chicken also like the miniature version of the breed, the Columbian Rock Bantam Chicken

    Colombian Rocks are Stunning!

    “My Colombian Rocks have all the traits of the Plymouth Rock breed, they are calm,docile and inquisitive. Mine started laying at 30-32 weeks. Their beautiful feathering make them a disgusted group among my chickens as they have adapted well with other breeds in my established flock. I enjoy them much!”

    Very Happy with the Columbian Rocks

    Hatched 3/12/2019. The Cackle shipment was packed well and all the chicks survived. I am very happy with these Columbian Rocks. Gentle rooster and the hens are laying most everyday. They started laying in August. They also look like they would make a nice table birds.

    Great Chickens

    I’ve had great success with this breed and I love them. The chicks were healthy and they seemed to grow a lot faster than my other breeds. Strangely enough they were laying eggs by the time they were 3 to 4 months old, which is great. I’m looking forward to getting more.

  4. Good chickens

    Medium energy, lay good

    Good chickens, something different than regular Plymouth rocks, the reason four stars because they are only sold as straight run so I ordered 14 chicks and ended up 7 roosters .. and couple hens where not as good quality as the rest they where smaller and not as good layers as their sisters..

    Healthy Chicks

    I received my chicks today all alive and healthy, the shipping date was delayed due to bad hatch. I never got my surprise chick which I was more excited about to know which breed and gender it’s gonna be and the same thing happen to me in my previous order..

    Our chicks made it yesterday. They all like and act in great shape after a short drink they went right to eating and running around.
