Okay, I'll admit it.  The topic caught my attention and I had to google it to find out what the heck it was!  lau

Very pretty and neat body shape.

Having an Icelandic in the coop is like having a 2 year old in the house - they are into everything and don't follow the rules.

I have zero chicken willpower.

Scots Dumpies are available this year for the first time from Sand Hill Preservation Center.  I imagine that these will sell out very quickly.

Heritage breeds poultry are a doorway to something more vast, something more beautiful.  When we choose to be dedicated to one or two breeds and breed them well, we save their utility for future generations.  Heritage fowl are a special resource.  To be safeguarded, they need breeders that are willing to breed them well, remembering always their heritage as useful farming fowl.  Pax et bonum.

They are the highlighted breed in the current Practical Poultry magazine. They were nearly extinct. They too remind me of the dachshund and the "munchkin" cats.  Except that neither of those can feed a family,nor is their poop beneficial.  lol

I'm debating whether to get some thinking they may need special care and article didn't say anything about the meat of them. So what to do with the extra roos?   I just haven't work my self up mentally to just killing them and throwing them away.   Is that to honest?

I think these are lovely birds, if anyone in the US had these it would be great  to meet them in person! big_smile If I had the time and money, I'd love to import this breed or at least find good sources in the US if there are any.
