Some chickens are for eggs. Some to raise chicks. Some maybe even to eat.

    have you no speacially trained fighting chickens? they could wear masks, like the luchiadores do. There may be a market for well rehearsed "fake" chicken fighting (think WWE with chickens). If you need a ring announcer, just let me know.

    That one on the right has a sweet head-dress.....very authentic looking.

    :lol: Cool chickens. If that is what they really are? Did you decorate them in your spare time? I have never seen a chicken that looks like that. Nice job with them Kathleen! :lol:

    That, my friends, is the national chicken of Switzerland. Very docile. Cold hardy. Comical to behold. Even a decent egg layer. Well the hen anyway.

    Been there before. I can just so totally understand that they would have a national chicken. :lol:

    And still believe that they have high school required courses in stacking firewood.

    So what does your rooster do. :lol:

    btw, do you know when a pullet becomes a hen? When it loses its first foot race...

    That particular rooster pretended he wasn't a rooster for as long as he could because the yard boss weighs about 12 pounds.

    re: the pullet joke. My previous roo was a wee bantam. Shortie just couldn't service the full sized hens. The first day that I brought the 12 pound yard boss home, he immediately deflowered all the spring pullets. It was like an assembly line :bug:

    My hair looks like that when I get up in the morning... :shut: :lol:
    I love those chickens....that is my fav part of the Bloomsberg fair...looking at all the funky chickens and other animals.

    No matter who I go to the fair with, they complain of the stink in the animal area. It doesn't bother me at all. I guess when you work in healthcare and have been projectile vomited on and pooped on, the sniffer kinda dies out. :smirk:

    Had a few Araucanas and would always get a smile when I found their funny colored eggs.
    Though many chickens look funny, Guinea Hens always act funny and are outright blast just to watch.

    They make excellent watch dogs. You'll always know when someone drives in.
