Can I use a number rather than a name? I buy my chickens' names by the box 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, etc., etc., etc. as leg bands.

Also I don't understand what you mean by endangered rate. How does one come up with that number.

I have some very rare breeds so could participate.
I own about 20% of all of one of them that exist in the US.

yes numbers instead of names are fine :)

by endangered rate I mean that- if your chicken is VERY rare, it will be close to 90%
if your chicken is the rarest breed ever then it will be 100%
if your chicken is just rare or a bit rare it will be 50-70%

is that easier to understand? :) thanks

when she was a young girl




Jaer1 and Jaer2

The Jaer is to the left with the light neck. I'll get better pics of her.

She's the one on the left in my avatar whey she was a juvenile and she's the mottled one in the pic above.

Delaware





Delaware Blue Roosters. I'm not even sure how to quantify their rarity in a percentage. Maybe 70? They seem to be pretty common in Delaware, but somewhat hard to find anywhere else.
