    Recently re-watched Fiddler On The Roof and was currious as to what breed of chicken that is running about throughout the movie. Buff body with brown hackles. They're similar to buff sussex but darker.

    BTW, I recommend revisting the old classics like Fiddler....so funny...the "what are you talking about?" scene where he thinks the butcher will want more cows when he's actually talking about taking one of his daughters for a wife. "Of course, you'll like that one and later come back to get another." "What are you talking about!?" [​IMG]

    Quote:this is funny! I saw this movie when it first came out, was too young to really get it. Now, I see mention of Topol and the movie on "Notting Hill" the other day, my MIL sent it for a christmas gift, I hadnt thought about it in years, Watched it a few days ago, and lo and behold its mentioned here!
    Amazing how that happens....Ill have to watch it again to see those chickens! BTW, I kind of missed the point of the FOTR significance in the movie where Topol says "a fiddler on the roof is like......."what??? Just curious if anyone knows....[​IMG]

    Wow, just had to search through the movie for the chickens and must I say - That move is sexist. [​IMG]

    Anyway, the chickens look like a mix of mutts. There's some orange ones in the beginning with black tails, could be anything. . . There's some Wheaten colored ones later (probably what you're referring to) but nothing purebred or recognizeable.
