    Okay I was thinking about this, why don't we start a thread.
    This is how,
    You say your breed
    Your experience
    Your pictures
    And any thing else you want to say about your breed.
    And why you got them

    Mutts pics can also be posted!
    And why you love them.

    Thank you

    My boss Roo, with his mutt girls. They're mutts, but they're my mutts and I love them. Meet : Jarhead, Red, Ben Ben, Peaches, Pooh, Petunia, Snicklfritz, Sandy, Ninja, Ellie, and Fluffybutt

    A scientist lady gave them to me when she lost her government funding for meat bird research. I wanted some egg layers, but didn't know where to begin. When she gave these to me, I just kind of figured it out. I'm still figuring it out, but it's alot easier than I thought it would be. Now that I have Fricken, I would like to go ahead and get some more 'fancy' breeds this Spring.

    Thanks! 7 of my feathered friends took on my children's nicknames.

    Jarhead- my 21 yr old stepson who is a Marine.

    Red- 20 year old stepdaughter who has red hair.

    Ben Ben- 15 year old stepdaughter who used to love Gullah Gullah Island, especially the character Benny Benny Pollywog.

    Peaches- my 18 year old daughter whose skin is like peaches and cream.

    Pooh- 15 year old son who I call Pooh Bear

    Petunia- my little 13 year old girl whose idea of a good time is dressing up in her fanciest attire to go roll around in the chicken pen and chase yaks through mounds of yak poo.

    Snicklefritz- The youngest of the bunch. My 7 year old little boy, who is pampered, babied and protected by the siblings and animals alike. Everyone has a soft spot for little Snicklefritz. Here's a silly picture that he took of himself with my hubby and me.

    Here's Fricken and his girlfriend, Bella. He's a sheep-lover, what can I say? [​IMG] Loves the sheep-hates the other chickens. I received a hay delivery today. The hay guy took a handful of fresh hay over to the sheep to say hello. Fricken jumped off of Bella's back, charged at the guy while flapping his wings, and crowed non-stop until the guy walked away. Strange little bird.

    Quote:Oh, thank you so much for posting that pic again! [​IMG] From your description of him, he definitely acts strange which is why I said he was "Mr. Unique". [​IMG] He certainly cracks me up, gotta love him and his antics.
