Chicken Breed Focus - Swedish Flower Hen - Page 4

post #31 of 41
I have a SF hen. She is very pretty and definitely has personality. She lays medium light brown eggs pretty often. She's a lovely mix of blues and browns with speckles.

This is my only picture of Reid on my phone lol.

Thank you.  If that is how she turns out I'd be very happy..gorgeous

:thumbsup agree

This is Ethel, named after my swedish great grandmother. She is the nicest chicken I have, and she will hop onto my lap and just take a nap. I couldn't imagine my flock without one of these chickens. :lol:

Whoa! Look at that hat! She's beautiful, and I am partial to a good poofy crest.

She is beautiful! :love   Love her yellow legs... but wouldn't breed that type of crest forward in a land race breed. Doesn't change that she is gorgeous though!

Here's some pictures of my only SFH, Sylvia. She is super inquisitive and kinda bossy! I love her personality and would definitely get more. I actually got her from Meyer Hatchery and was pretty pleased with how she looked even compared to those from a breeder.

She is pretty. How old is she? Curious, because friendliness develops at different ages and she looks very confident. :)
