    What is your least favorite chicken breed and why?

    Either because they are mean, hard to care for, bratty? Anything.

    That'd be a toss-up between Turkens and Silkies. I detest the odd fluff on a Silkie and I dont like their faces or combs. Maybe I've seen too many hatchery versions, LOL. Turkens just look ugly and diseased to me, is all. Sorry, Jordan! [​IMG]

    There's been a couple other posts on least favorite breeds.
    Mine is Standard White Leghorns because all the ones we've ever had were just spazz, but last week I broke down and purchased Bantam White Leghorns and they are great!

    I don't really care for anything with a spout of feathers on its head /: Silkies I don't mind, though. I like my chickens round and cute, personally :)

    I don't like any that are good fliers.

    Birds that insist on roosting in trees get eaten.

    Also, a short chicken yard fence is easier to make cute than a tall one.

    I don't like sexlinks. Mine were dumb like turkeys and drowned in the chick water. All the roos (8) and 1 hen survived. We ate the roos and the hen attacks everything. She killed one of my ducklings and I'm not forgiving her. [​IMG]

    Easter Eggers....the three that I have known have mean personalities...even the other chickens don't like them!

    Turkens....very sad, whoever did that to them. Ugliest animals I've ever seen...well, except the naked mole rat!
