    Wow, I haven't seen that kind before. That's a unique-looking bird!

    Have you guys ever seen pictures of the completely featherless chickens? I think they were bred to be raised in very warm climates (which doesn't make sense to me since birds *with* feathers seem to have no problems in most places).

    Yep, seen it. I hadn't heard much more on them since they first published that picture several years ago. I figured it was just a "see what we can do" moment that has long passed.

    I bet their faces are sooo soft LoL Like the Shar Pei of the chciken world.

    The featherless were supposed to be bred for faster processing time when they were slaughtered.

    I want that featherless chicken breed. But it would probably freeze to death in the late spring here.

    Edit: After reading the comments in the article,never mind, I don't think its ugly though.
