    ETA: and you should be able to find information on them if you click on the "breeds" link at the top...

    If you do find some "barn builder" chickens, send them my way. They can build all the barns they want for me [​IMG] and I'll feed them a good "wage."

    Yep. Cute, rare breed with a small and completely erect crest.
