    Okay. Now, without looking at any lists or ANYTHING of that sort, name as many different types of chicken breeds right off the top of your head that you can! But wait! Here's the challenge! Can you put them in Alphabetical order from Z to A? I'm not looking for A to Z we need some backwards people! So, the fianl question is : How many can you name?

    Okay... from Z... no Z's... Y's... X's... W's... yes we'll start there...

    Welsummers, Spanish, Sizzles, Silkies, Showgirls, Sex Links, Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, Redcaps?, Polish, Orpingtons, New Hampshire Reds, Marans, Long Crowers, Leghorn, Jungle Fowl, Jersey Giant, Icelandic, Frizzle, (Egyptian) Fayomi, English Game, Easter Egger (not a standard but it is a category), Dorking, Delaware, Cornish, Columbian, Cochins, Californian, Caya... Cuya... Cubacabra (you know the one I mean! Wait, maybe that's a duck.), Australorps, Aracaunas, Anconas, Ameracaunas

    Cannot for the life of me remember the blue legged French ones... I was JUST reading about them yesterday... sad sad sad.
    Forgive any spelling errors, I didn't want to google to fix them. Buttercup wouldn't get out of my head, but isn't that a comb type?

    Gah, I give... I know as soon as I hit post five more will pop in my head, but this'll do... not too bad for a noob I think.
