    Just for fun - what are your favorite exotic breeds? (or at least unique or heritage breeds).

    Not sure if they count as exotics but Black-Tailed White Japanese Bantams. So beautiful yet also docile.

    yes buttercups are exotic. either critical or threatened (I dont remember which). a friend has 2 roos and 3 hens out there from mcmurray. no eggs yet and probably wont until spring as they are supposedly not cold hardy as several others. she lost a couple when they were younger.
     
  7. i have a buttercup pullet and a blue andalusain cockrel

    Black Penedesenca. What's not to like. Great for meat and eggs, foraging, extremely hardy and predator proof.

    They just won't make a lap pet.
