    Sicilian Buttercup. Standard/LF size.


    You've got a nice little flock. I LOVE seeing more people with something more special than the average sexlink and buff orpington and such. [​IMG]

    Looks similar to a cockerel I have... a cross between a Barred Rock Rooster and Golden Comet Hen.

    Definitely Sicilian Buttercup. Named for the cup-like comb.

    She's really pretty and standard size. Many of the white egg layers only get to be 4-5 pounds. I've become more interested in them - they eat less and I can have more chickens! Plus they're different from the typical BRs, RIRs, sex-links, etc. I don't have any of those. I think my Cuckoo Marans is my most "standard" chicken, other than my EEs.

    Next year I may order the McMurray rarest of rare pullet or the Ideal rare pullet or lighter breed pullet assortment. I like the concept of being surprised.

    I'm envious!

    Standard (LF) Sicilian Buttercup, though she'll be on the smaller side of large fowl.

    My buttercup is 2 1/2 and still laying well.

    What a gorgeous standard buttercup! [​IMG] I'm jealous, and definitely thinking of adding one or two to my flock next year
