    Any rare breeds out there that not many people know about? There might be a lot or not a lot but i am just curious. Would love to see some pics and know what they're personalities are like :)

    It's pretty late through most of the country. Give it some time.

    I'll be taking pics of the four I hatched from Revolutionmama's eggs. (hatch 6 but two died [​IMG] )

    1 is a black chick, I'm thinking sumatra.
    2 look to be Red Sussex and
    1 seems to be a Buff Sussex... we'll see as they feather out. They are just over a month old now.

    They look like a game chicken in body type, but have a naked neck like a Turken. My brother has some and they just started laying about three days ago. They were May chicks.
