Isbar Fowl

The Isbar was developed in Sweden in the 1950s by Martin Silverudd. They lay around 250 large green eggs a year.

Blue is the preferred color, but as with most Blue fowl, they also exist in White, Splash and Black. The hens weigh around 2-2.5 kg.

They are a fairly docile, easy-going bird and generally pretty good on range.
