    It is a good looking bird. I have to say that. I thought it was interesting that they mentioned the jungle fowl in the breed's background. As if all breeds did not. LOL.

    Yes, this resonates a lot to me, but I got started late (in my 40s). I admire those who got an early start & got some good mentoring at an early age. I started with hatchery stock & was going nowhere fast goofing around with them! [​IMG] I got the Malines in 2013, after a year of researching what breed would really fulfill our small family's needs. They've provided great meat & some eggs along with a stimulating challenge to keep them going.

    Looking into this & going to try with our teen son. Tried everything else it seems, to no avail. Prescription meds don't even work. Can't hurt to try!

    That is the thing Arielle. I did not realize then how big a deal it was to enjoy a strain like that. We do not get it until we do I guess. I also did not know how rare the good stuff was. The backyard chicken movement had not started yet. The internet was just becoming something that was discussed etc. If you were not in the loop, you did not know. I only began to fully realize when I began looking for NHs.

    I might try it to. I have SFN, and it would be worth trying anyways.
