Blue Sumatra

$5.50

Blue Sumatra originated on the island of Sumatra located in West Indonesia south of the Malay Peninsula in Southeast Asia.  Sumatra chickens aren’t very good at providing you with a meal, be it breakfast or dinner, as they aren’t very strong layers and don’t fatten up well.  They are, however, prized as show birds due to their fancy tails and uniquely-colored face.  Blue Sumatra chicks are primarily blue with white wing tips, chest and abdomen.  They have a small pea comb and clean, yellow and black legs and feet.  Adults males and females have a glossy blue plumage and slate colored legs.  They have long tails and sickles and coverts that sweep to the ground if cared for properly.  Sumatra are very active chickens that require lots of space to run and roam about.  Blue Sumatra Chickens are great birds for show.
