Ameraucana

Ameraucana

“ Ameraucanas are georgeous birds. My favorite variety are the blue, but i love them all (white, black, buff, wheaten, blue wheaten, brown red, silver and the un accepted colors too lavender and splash). The blue eggs they lay are so pretty too. Personally Ameraucanas are my favorite breed. The first chicken I ever had was an ameruacana. I love to show them. All of mine are docile, really cold...” --CCCCCCCCHICKENS

American Game

“ I've had them since I could crawl.They where my first birds and will be my last birds!The roosters and hens are very protective of the chicks and they will fight off any predator four-legged or two-legged.You can't beat them for free rangers or broodys.The only thing is you have to seperate the stags at about6 months or you'll end up with one or two less birds! ” --RingedTeal

American Game Bantams

American Game Bantams

“These birds are absolutely incredible parents and the hens are efficient when it comes to brooding and raising young.   They don't eat much and can get 99% of it by free ranging.  A little overzealous when it comes to territory but I like having these birds around. ” --JJSS89

Ameri-Flower

Ameri-Flower

“I have a young Ameri-Flower rooster that I love, he is so pretty! He's extremely sweet but he hasn't hit sexual maturity yet so things could change. He looks like a splash americauna but is crested and bearded, he has become my favorite part of the flock- I just love watching him. He has a lot of spunk/personality, I'm really hoping he continues this docile personality to adulthood.  ” --melishkia

Andalusian

Andalusian

“ My Blue Andalusian, Silver, is one of my favorite chickens.  She is seven months old and is a delightful member of the flock. Her coloring and lacing is just beautiful even though she is a hatchery chick.  She lays a medium to large white egg 6 days a week with an occasional jumbo.  She fits in well with my flock and does not pick on the other girls, but does stand up for...” --nova022

Appenzeller Spitzhauben

“ Back in the early 2000's I was in Appenzell Switzerland.  When I heard the chicken name, Appenzeller Sptizhauben, I had to get one.  Boy was I in for a treat!  What lovely birds.  I started with four...because of there "hair cuts", I named them John, Paul George and Ringo...Paul and George became Paula and Georgia!   John was the best rooster I ever...” --SandyC

Araucana

Araucana

“ A challenging breed for the newcomer and even challenging for the advanced breeder when breeding towards the SOP but they more than make up for all of their difficulties by providing so much enjoyment and use.  Breeding for the trademark tufts is not for everyone, especially those with tender hearts.  The gene responsible for the tufts (which are not the same as muffs/beard in other...” --smoothmule

Bantam Partridge Wyandotte

Bantam Partridge Wyandotte

“I currently have 1 Partridge cockerel, 1 Partridge pullet, 1 Silver Pencilled Pullet and 1 Silver Laced Pullet- all of which are Bantams. Each girl gives me a small creamy/ pink egg everyday without fail and are really dedicated broodys and very protective mothers! They are absolutely stunning to look at (especially the cockerels) and are a very popular breed to show- ideal breed to start...” --DancingWthDucks

Barnevelder

“ The two hens I had were purchased from a local lady that was moving house (England). They were 2 and a half years old, and in need of a new home. She had alot of other breeds, but these were so beautiful that they stole my vote immediately. Stunning lacing, yellow legs and very large and heavy. They are about the same size as my Brahma's. By far the most friendly hens...” --Sailing Dede
