Aseel

Aseel

“           if you noticed that i used the word 'game' for pro and con, i have my reasons. the asil or aseel was imported from the middle east and india because their gameness was used for fighting and grading into american and english games. cockfighting is illegal now and there is not much demand for game chickens that don't lay very many eggs. that being...” --cubalaya

Bantam-Cochin

Bantam-Cochin

“ A few years ago my family and I owned a small flock of these as chicks and eventually we mixed them with another small flock of belgian d'uccles. We preferred bantams because they didn't seem to wander into the neighbors' yards. Over time though some of them died (one got eaten by a neighbor's dog, one got sick and one died on the brood), and now I only have one left. She's an old girl and...” --Min27

chicken Phoenix - Bantam

chicken Phoenix - Bantam

“ I had a little bantam that I originally thought was a silver duckwing, but ended up being a phoenix. He was the absolute sweetest bird I have ever had. I held him daily since he was a little cockerel and it payed off. When he would see me, he ran over to me and rubbed on my feet. I would pick him up and put him in my coat and he'd fall asleep in my jacket. He NEVER showed any aggression...” --shmccarthy

Cochin

Cochin

“ Cochins are among my favorite breeds. I had never had an aggressive cochin, even the roosters are super sweet.  They are very cuddly and love attention making them wonderful pets. Even though I have heard cochins are poor layers mine lay an egg a day, except for in the winter. ” --chickenluver100

Cornish Cross

Cornish Cross

“ I've raised two batches of the CX and are incredibly impressed with their foraging abilities, their activity levels and their tough nature.  These birds can get an injury and brush it off like it never happened.  Heal up so fast and well that you can't tell who was injured, even when doing the processing later.    They have a great feed conversion and I've never lost...” --Beekissed

Crevecoeur

Crevecoeur

“ Crevecoeurs are really neat birds. They are smart, lay (huge) white eggs and are very friendly. Most of my hens are extremely "talkative" too and the roosters eat out of my hands. Very nice birds. They are in dire need of more people dedicated to working with them. ” --Rare Feathers Farm

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
