Does anyone have these? What are they like?
Okay, I'll admit it. The topic caught my attention and I had to google it to find out what the heck it was!
Very pretty and neat body shape.
Never heard of anyone here having them.
Here is what they look like though if anyone else is wondering http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/CGP/Dumpy/BRKDumpy.html
Scots Dumpies are available this year for the first time from Sand Hill Preservation Center. I imagine that these will sell out very quickly.
Ack! They look like the dachshund of the chicken world!

Quote:he has offered them in the past, I have old catalogs from the past 2004 on up, they are kinda like a dorking
I don't know of anyone on here has any, but I have seen them in books.
They are the highlighted breed in the current Practical Poultry magazine. They were nearly extinct. They too remind me of the dachshund and the "munchkin" cats. Except that neither of those can feed a family,nor is their poop beneficial.
I'm debating whether to get some thinking they may need special care and article didn't say anything about the meat of them. So what to do with the extra roos? I just haven't work my self up mentally to just killing them and throwing them away. Is that to honest?
I think these are lovely birds, if anyone in the US had these it would be great to meet them in person! If I had the time and money, I'd love to import this breed or at least find good sources in the US if there are any.
