Lately my show breeding has been hitting some bumps. My chicken run has been down-graded in size. My neighbor filed a noise complaint, even though our houses are considered rural. Winters here have been getting pretty bad. All this added up is making me favor those Cuties more and more. My final deciding factor for switching over was when I was deciding on entries for State Fair and I picked the two seramas "cause they're cuter". I left my show birds at home and brought my pets to show instead. I've now decided that I really like the idea of having a few Pet chickens that are Cute chickens, too. I have always liked Cute Chickens. I often times will buy a little mixed cutie over a show bird. I have decided that it'd be more enjoyable to just breed for cute and for fun than adhering to breed standards and stressing over quality breeding stock. So, looks like I'll be breeding for Cuteness now! Yippeee! The possibilities are literally endless. Who's with me, here? I'm doing what I love with a lot less stress.
