In the early 1900s, blue chicken was developed near Decorah, Iowa (USA). Iowa Blue chickens are a multipurpose breed with good meat and a lot of eggs. They have a good hunter consciousness and are particularly good herd guards against hawks.
By Iowa blue poultry standards it is not actually blue. The Iowa Blue chicken is not officially recognized as the American Bantam Association, the American Poultry Association, or any other breed standard.
Its genus is extremely rare. However, they are a great backyard herd. And by breeding this breed, you can enjoy its dual purpose abilities and help restore an endangered breed.
