He is an Oriental breed, likely an Asil.  My comment about the stove pipe refers to his erect carriage or stance.

Keep your chickens safe from predators, buy and wear fur.

I wonder how a peacock or two would work in a chicken run for protection?

Well it's, alright now,

I learned my lesson well. See ya,

can't please everyone, so ya,

gotta please yourself.

 

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment. ~Warren Bennis~

Against hawks during day pretty good. Against mammals and Great-horned Owls at night not so good.

Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it.
