Unless you know they came from Key West or their ancestors did I would not call them Key West Chickens. They look like any group of free breeding mongrel chickens look. The behavior you mention is natural chicken behavior. It is not exclusive to the chickens of Key West.
Does anyone have and key west chickens/eggs for sale or adoption? My husband has wanted some for the last couple of years. We were going to try bringing home a few when we were in the Keys earlier this year but we were completely out of room in our car! I'd love to surprise him with a late Christmas/early bday present!
