I just got some Kentucky Specks chicks and all I know is they are a 200+ year old breed and not very common. And they are bantam and from Kentucky. No really, the parents of these chicks came from Kentucky.

Anything else interesting about them? What are they bred for? Who developed the breed? Why are they not in the standard if they are a 200 y/o breed? Do they come in any other color but mottled? Anyone here ever have or currently have them?

These were hatched out by the man who ownes the adults. I got some eggs from him to hatch back in January and the only one that hatched turned out to be a silkie!
