    Haha I know it sounds funny. I know we have more than enough people on here to get several groups of people together to breeds some new types. We would of course get to name them! Would the breeders name them? Put it up for a forum vote?

    Terrielacy's Slayer of Threads Silkie (Yes whenever I see your name thats what I think) OH NOES Purplechicken NO!!! You have AWOKEN Terrielacy Destroyer of Threads

    Bubba's Black Jersey Sizzle

    Bubba's Purple Polish

    American Polish hahaha

    Ok so I suck at names.

    What features do you find most attractive of the breeds you like? I would love to get a barred rock that has green (black) and red barring instead of black and white. Not sure if it's possible but I think you should get the gist of it now.

    I think a silkie or frizzles the size or anywhere close to a jersey giant would be amazing. Imagine a 10lb ball of fluff. They would make basketballs look small.

    How about a large polish that has White Laced Red Cornish markins on it. That would be a remarkable bird!

    Has anyone seen a Ayam Cemani?

    So list colors, traits, combs, feathers, shiny/light refracting, leg color etc that you like.

    Tell me what yall think about this idea? Should this be something the site is active in? Niftychicken?

    Most of all, I want a nice chicken, with a pleasant personality. I want it to be reasonably good at laying eggs. I want it to be able to adapt to confinement or free ranging, as needed. I want a smaller comb and wattles, to better withstand the cold.

    As for the purely decorative aspects of a chicken, well, I find that they all have their particular charms. [​IMG]

    One that does NOT fly at all in any way whatsoever, yet lays plenty of medium-large green/blue/brown/white eggs even through the winter. So, a silkie crossed with Araucanas, Marans, but with the production of an Orpington and a sweet temperament. Also a pea comb would be good, I had to Vaseline the boys' wattles last night and it was not pleasant for any of us. I like the partridge colors, because to me they look like "real" chickens, but color is less important than the other traits.

    IMO, it's not that important what breed a chicken is. I've always favored mutts when it comes to animal breeding. [​IMG] Then again, I'm a bit of a mutt myself [​IMG]

    We could put a little necklace around it with a padlock on it.
