I just recieved a chicken book, it described all breeds of chickens and most of their orgins.
It listed a brief discription, of a breed of chickens in the 1900's called the CREEPER. Thought is sounded neat
so I thought I'd post on BYC
.

There's many BYC'ers that have alot of neat chicken breeds.

OH!
I thought you were saying 'creeper' like a peeping tom-type creeper. I haven't heard of a creeper chicken, maybe I'll do a google image search? Are they still around?
