This have been brewing with me for some time. I keep these birds for a variety of reasons that in the past involved what the breed had it reputation for. These days my interest in the breed is more varied yet I still have an interest in its preservation. Part of the battle is getting more people interested in the breed. Another part is overcoming ignorance. This thread will emphasize how these birds can be kept by the typical keepers of backyard chickens that have limited resources. Effort will relate peculiarities of the breed and how you the keeper can adjust so as to reduce risk to keeper and the birds that come from mismanagement.
