Giro Gamefowl

Giro Gamefowl

“ We were given a fighting cock and the only reason we took him was he was so bedraggled and pitiful looking.  He, George, was the gentlest rooster we have ever had.  When he would find bugs the chicks would gather around and he never pecked at or chased them away.  All our chickens are pets and he took very well to being a pet.  We lost him when a coyote came snooping...” --slipshift

Golden Nugget

Golden Nugget

“Blondie (the name of our golden nugget chicken) was our first broody hen and does very well in egg production. She raised her chick well and we have another good egg laying hen because of it. She free ranges very well and isn't a lot of trouble. Although she can sometimes be grouchy we still love her! ” --mrs buff laced

Golden Sex Link

Golden Sex Link

“ I recently did some math to see if our five Golden Comets were earning their keep. During the summer I got five eggs per day, every day, and in the winter with no additional lighting I still got four. Assuming they produced an average of 31 eggs per week, that's 124 per month and 1488 per year! Considering a dozen eggs at the grocery store are about three dollars, that's at least $372 in eggs...” --Gofygure

Golden Spangled Hamburgs

Golden Spangled Hamburgs

“I usually don't get an animal on a whim but that's exactly what happened with my Hamburg.  I had reserved three 10 week old Easter Egger pullets from a local farm-share and made the arrangements to pick them up but when I arrived, they had forgotten to crate my girls the evening before so we set out on the task of catching my little ladies, none of whom had really...” --islandgirl82

Gold Star

Gold Star

“We have a flock of six chickens and two ducks, and we have one Gold Star. She is by far our friendliest of the flock, she comes running whenever we bring out food and treats, and was the first to be tamed and eat out of our hands. She is quiet and really sweet, and she started laying eggs at only 18 weeks old!    We're on our first chickens, but knowing the differences between our...” --Butterprint

Hamburg

Hamburg

“My Avalon is the prettiest bird in a flock of 37, sporting iridescent spangles that strongly contrast blindingly white plumage. Her first egg was quite surprising for us, since we were expecting a normal white, but what we found in the nesting box bore a striking resemblance to a small, shiny, rosy pearl.   I value Avalon as a "watchbird" for our flock, as it seems that she is...” --Alexandra33

Hatcheries, Day Old Chicks

Hatcheries, Day Old Chicks

“ Our first order was in June of 2012 -- and like many who've reviewed, we had problems getting the breeds we wanted -- all on the same date.  The shipping cost is steep with My Pet Chicken, and being a beginner, I really didn't relish the idea of integrating different age groups of hens.  We settled on substitutes and made arrangements with our post mistress to call us immediately on...” --FuzzyMugz

Heritage White from S&G Poultry

Heritage White from S&G Poultry

“ I did not have a good experience with these birds. Here is the description from S&G's website: "The Heritage White chicken comes from the old White Plymouth Rock stock. Its sturdy frame and well balanced body makes it a great meat bird, not like the sluggish Cornish Cross with its giant breast. Our bird is bred to perform outside where it can earn its keep using a keen sense of...” --DStewart PDX
