    They are very pretty. They are not a true chicken, they are related to grouse which are all interesting. I have never personally seen them but on another forum I am on there are people that breed them.

    They would be considered a game bird, like quail or grouse, not a chicken.

    I think that they are technically a grouse. I would like one though [​IMG].
