Pros: Beautiful Snow Leapard Chicken
Cons: Crazy as a bag of wet cats, jumpy, extreamly hyper
Admittedly, I had never seen a chicken like this Silver Spotted beauty before!
and I knew NOTHING about the breed... I just knew my wife would love it!
I won this gorgeous bird at a local auction!
Where I dueled it out with a 12 year old 4H Girl until she ran out of allowance... - evil grin
In hindsight I should have let her win...
My daughter named her "Spot" before we even got home.
Once home, she lived a total of 30 minutes before committing suicide... No really... I kid you not!
When I reached into her wooden auction crate to remove her,
SHE FREAKED OUT and struggled so violently that she broke her own neck!
And died 3 minutes later right there in my hands!
(Yes, I was holding her in my two hands, normally, like I have held chickens for years now!)
I have never seen anything like it in my life!
She was soooo beautiful, That I felt like I broke a vase, only I have never seen a vase suffer and die!
and then there was the tears and accusations of "bird murder" I had to face from my enraged daughter
because the chicken chose to 'spontaniously combust" in my hands and not in someone elses.
It was BY FAR the most WTH moments my family has experienced all year.
There was MUCH weeping and Gnashing of teeth on my families part.
MOSTLY on me! Not cool at all!
If you want to admire your birds from a far
and never interact with them, I guess this bird is a good choice.
