    Can someone please tell me what the chicken breed is called that looks like a bald eagle? I wrote the breed name down and then I misplaced it. Thank you muchly.

    [Edited to clarify] Their heads and necks are white and their bodies are mainly brown with some lesser colors mixed in. They don't look like bald eagles in any other way obviously - but the coloring. Thanks!

    We don't have them yet - they're on their way though =) I like them, too! :)

    I can't for the life of me remember the breed, but it's specific, no links. :( bah - I need to find that piece of paper. lol

    I found my paper. lol It was stuck under the drawer instead of inside it. [​IMG]


    That being said - I was mistaken. They don't ALL look like bald eagles...just the two I saw did. They're Russian Orloffs.

    Yeah..never would have guessed Orloff's. They shouldn't have a completely white head! lol!

    Those are really pretty, too!! Thank you for the link and info!! :)
    Yeh, most of the ones I have seen actually do have white heads (for the most part) but their feathers all over their body are multicolored and not solid brown/black like the picture of the ones I had seen prior. Either way I think they're beautiful - their face shape and beak also resembles an eagle/hawk rather than a chicken. I [​IMG] them. =)

    I don't have any orloffs yet; never said I did. [​IMG] (and I'm not entirely sure what you mean by it's "just a mix" what bird(s) are you referring to?)

    I was asking what the bird was that I remembered seeing a couple of months ago. I do have some eggs on the way as of yesterday - and they are not mixes. I'll post pictures when (and if) they hatch. They are ridiculously expensive so I only have 4 coming.

    The pictures all over google images of this breed have white faces. Very few do not.

    That being said - I've learned a lot on the actual Orloff thread here on this forum, and I seriously doubt there are very many of the real deal in the USA. I'm wanting the original, black, massively huge, upright Orloff...but I'll settle for spangled for now.[​IMG]

    This is the picture I had seen two months ago that reminded me of bald eagles, and the picture that first turned me 'on' to the breed, too. I just figured they weren't available in the USA at all, so I put them out of my head until I realized there were some in the US - then it started all over again.[​IMG]
