Aloha Chickens

Aloha Chickens

“My Maizee is an Aloha that was rejected from the breeding group due to her green legs. Other than that, she's a perfet example of the breed. She lays beautiful smallish cream coloured eggs pretty regularly. She's still laying even though the rest of the flock is slacking. She is pretty noisy. She always greets me with a very loud welcome, and continues to welcome me about 5 minutes after I walk...” --Rezia

Booted

Booted

“My Porcelin Booted Bantams are adorable! My rooster is very docile and never fought with the LF roosters. But we had to move the pair because he got picked on too much. They will make good lap birds if you handle them young. ” --Phoenix Farms

Catalana

Catalana

“ Catalanas could use more keepers in the States.  I found some authentic Catalanas after a long search. They were worth the effort. I have been impressed with their style, smarts, and confidence. They are all business. They are however, easy to manage and not flighty as some might expect. They lay a nice white egg, and plenty of them. Even up to and through the winter. Catalanas are a...” --gjensen

Fayoumis

Fayoumis

“I had a beautiful flock of Fayoumis at one time. I loved watching them and wanted to keep them forever! However, the roosters became too noisy as they grew up. They would crow almost constantly when I was outside. They crowed so much that I became embarrassed and felt sorry for our neighbors.   The egg size is small. The pullet eggs we were getting were bantam sized. I am sure they would...” --ChickensAreSweet

La Fleche

La Fleche

“ I'm producing a review as nobody has done so yet, but I'm no expert on these birds. I hatched mine from eggs and the fertility of my own 4 hens and one rooster has been exceptional.They are described as large fowl....my hens weigh about 5-6 lbs and the rooster a bit more, but they are young birds (hatched August 2011).They have lovely shiny all black feathers, with a striking V comb and white...” --pgpoultry

Malay

Malay

“ I used to raise and show Wheaten Malay. They are awesome dinosaur-like birds. Your friends will be surprised to see a chicken like this. Mine were out of German stock. The cock was 38" tall (over 3 feet) and weighed as much as some of our turkeys. We had to use a goose legband for him, his legs were massive and long. They have cool personalities, they are not afraid of anything. They eat...” --Silseb

Minorca

Minorca

“ Minorcas have always struck me as true royalty of the poultry world because of their stately presence and impressive size.  They are often overlooked for egg production in favor of White Leghorns or sex links these days but they are exceptional layers of very large white eggs. Once fully developed they are very large in size.  A full grown cock bird will be close to three feet with...” --WyandotteTX

Modern Game

Modern Game

“I absolutely love this breed! They are everything I love in chickens; calm, curious, very good egg layers for their size, and flashy. The chicks I have right now will snuggle up against me and fall asleep, as well as chitter quietly to tell me about their day. The hens go broody pretty frequently (every Spring I believe) and are perfect for showmanship. They don't get the problems associated...” --Half-Pint

o shamo

o shamo

“My grandfather and uncle have both had these but I never would - the cockerels and hens with eggs or chicks can be very aggressive and because of their size can do real damage if they want to - my uncle would bring a dustbin lid or a broom handle whenever he went to collect eggs, always wore boots after one pecked a puncture wound into his leg and no longer keeps any since having a child last...” --Jersey101
