Two Breeds - White Sullys and Allen Setter Bantams

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

These are two breeds that I can only find limited info on.  Seems like the white sullys I read about way back when in the newspaper or something.   Here is what little I could find about the white sully.

     The heaviest chicken is 22lbs. (10kg approx.) and belonged to Grant
Sullens of West Point, California, USA. This breed of chicken is a'
White Sully'. It is known to have a very mean temper as it has been
reported to have killed two cats and wounded a dog.

Big Snow, the largest chicken on record, weighed 23 pounds, 3 ounces,
and was of the breed White Sully developed by Grant Sullens of West
Point, California, USA, and was owned and bred by Ronald Alldridge of
Deuchar, Queensland, Australia, Big Snow died of natural causes on
September 6, 1992

     The second one I saw a link to on Feathersite but the link was broken so I couldn't find out anything else. 

      I don't know why but this bugs me-- Just throwing this out in case somebody has something to fill in the gaps.  --Wayne in Tn

i had forgotten all about this post-  But it seems like the teacher brought an article to my school in the 70 's and  read it to us in class about these.  I think that's where I first heard it but  my memory is vague on  it though and it's possible it was somewhere else I first heard about them.  Seems like at the time the article said that these chickens  had killed some dogs and some cats that  wandered into their coop.
