Greenfire Farms is a poultry breeding facility located in Havana, Florida. They specialize in rare chicken breeds and color varieties from around the world.  I was interested in visiting the hatchery since they work with two breeds that the Livestock Conservancy has on its Conservation Priority List - the Sussex and the Wyandotte. During a recent trip to Florida, I had the opportunity to visit the facility and meet with the farm manager, Jenny Taylor, for a tour of this unique facility. Here are just a few of the amazing birds I encountered and was able to photograph during the visit.

Yamato Gunkei – Despite the fierce face, this is a very sweet rare Japanese breed that can be easily tamed.

Ayam Cemani – An Indonesian breed with black skin, eyes, feathers, muscle, and even bones!

Barbezieux – A very tall rare French meat chicken. This is one of the tallest European breeds.
