Kraienköppe

Kraienköppe

“Kraienkoppes are very alert to predators, and are perfect free-range birds. They lay tinted eggs in great quantities if you can find the nest and leave some dummy eggs because they will move their nests if you take them all. Even the pullets that have just started laying do this and go broody in the fall/winter! Hatchery stock is smaller than it is supposed to be (common in all breeds), and not...” --krelm

Russian Orloff

Russian Orloff

“ Russian Orloff chickens are one of those breeds that captivates those of us who raise them. They are very alert and active, the hens are friendly and calm natured, the roosters are non human aggressive and look after the hens to a degree you seldom see in other breeds.  Although most think they are from Russia, they most likely originated in the mid-east. I have seen news footage from...” --mississippifarmboy

Showgirl

Showgirl

“ First time I saw a picture of a Show Girl I didn't care for it, didn't want one either. Now I have one Show Girl. The egg was kinda forced on me to hatch. Chick is 5 months old and I still don't know if it's male or female. I think they are a Good ornamental chicken. I also have a female Silkie, so if my Show Girl is male I will breed them. They grow on you! ” --B J Hopkins

Silkie

Silkie

“ Silkies are a wonderful bantam pet breed in my experience.  They have funny personalities and are friendly, even with children.  They make great, nurturing mothers and even the roosters are often good with chicks.  This is why some use silkies to hatch eggs from other types of poultry.  The silkie girls were born to be mothers and often go broody.  They are...” --Shayna

Sizzle

Sizzle

“Absolutely love my Frizzled Sizzle Rooster! I am not sure what the coloring is called but he is all dark gray. He is so sweet. He was hatched with other Sizzles and Silkies so he has a "brother" Silkie and they spar seldomly and hang together all the time. I think the sparing is just for fun though!     ” --FaerieChicken

Yokohama

Yokohama

“ I got my first Yokos just a few weeks ago.  It was a dream come true for me.  I've been getting to know them while they're in the quarantine pen, and so far, I'm in love.  Not only are they gorgeous, my roo is such a gentleman.  He selects the best morsels of the greens that I pick for them and offers them to his hen from his beak.  If he drops the greens on the...” --shotah
