    My DH insists there is a chicken breed call the Alabama Democrat that is a large breed and lays huge white eggs. He can't give me any further detail as he has not seen this so called breed, however his "Freind" supposedly has a hen. Now DH is on a path to obtaining this breed.....

    Any one ever heard or seen or has pics or info about this suspected backyard mix someone made up?

    Most likely a localized name for a particular "breed" -- since his "friend" has one why not get information from them?

    The Alabama democrat chicken comes from the Alabama democratic logo prior to 1968. It was a chicken with certain writing above and below it. Let's just say it isn't appropriate for this forum or any other . No actual breed that I have ever found.

    If you want to do your own research it can be found on google images.

    Looking at the logo the Alabama Democrat is nothing more than a Leghorn owned by supremacists. Makes sense they'd want a white cock as their logo.

    There's a man that lives in Alabama by the name of Ray Alexander that raises a game called a democrat. There is a game democrat not just in Alabama and not a mix

    If there s such a breed as the Alabama Democrat, I'm sure it's a taxing one to care for.



    (That's what? three puns now?)

    Well it may be taxing, but they would have healthcare roads and schools, even chickens know that stuff is not free[​IMG]
