The kingdom of the sky had been peaceful for centuries, but a man named Zant was prepared to change that.

A way:
hold in your arm, either dip cupped hand in bucket/under faucet and pour on crest and just massage her...rinse and repeat...

 

OR

Wait till it's pouring out in decent temperatures, put on your raincoat, grab hen, stand in rain, massage head!  :-)

 

Or

Spray bottle while holding her...

 

Even easier if someone else will hold her or you hold her and let someone else do it! No matter how you decide to do it, remember to make it fun for both of you...Don't expect to stay dry and clean and maybe bring some treats for her while she's "suffering" thru it!

Can I see a full body picture of him? (The side)

Sultans have a very specific body type.

Hmm. I think I can see his wings pointed down, which is a very good sign. Is his comb shaped like two horns?

I looked at all the caged animals in the barn...the cast-offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness, and betrayal. And I was angry."God," I said, "this is terrible! Why don't you do something?"God was silent for a moment, and then He spoke softly, "I have done something...I created you."

wow how pretty!!!

 

 

 

I have a question for all you sultan fans: how is their hatch rate compared to other breeds? I know some (like seramas) can be difficult to hatch and I was wondering if sultans were easy or hard to hatch. Thanks!

I have never hatched before. I hope to this spring though. These are the best breed of chicken in the world. Mine are actually great layers too!
