The hens are also a very heavy bird but gentle, they lay a cream colored egg that is large and also lay a large number of eggs.
The Maline is somewhat of an auto sexing bird but the visual clues are not easily recognized at hatch but days or a week after hatch the clues are noticeable. We will only sell the day old chicks as straight run.
If you are looking for beautiful, sweet tempered, easy to handle, physically impressive birds for your backyard flock, the Maline should be at the top of your list.
We traveled to Greenfire Farms in the spring 2016 to pick up our breeders and also took a farm tour. During our tour as we walked past the Maline pen I was so impressed with the way their little faces were pressed up against the fence, I knew instantly I had to have this bird. They beg for your attention, I LOVE it!!
Have a Great Day!
