    This may sound like an odd question, but the other day someone asked me if I have any “Kissing Chickens”. I thought they were joking, but apparently they were not. They are supposed to be a breed of chicken that doesn’t have as large of a beak as others, more like a regular bird. I don’t know anything other than that. His mom had them when he was growing up and friends of his asked him if I had them. It may be just a nickname for a different breed or maybe a chicken that was debeaked. But has anybody heard of them or that nickname?

    I watched a guy give a chicken mouth-to-beak once, but I'm guessing that's not what you mean...

    I did try to google it and ended up with some results of people kissing chickens and someone from New York rolling around on the floor of a subway car hugging and kissing a chicken. Not the results I was looking for! [​IMG]
