    These are two breeds that I can only find limited info on. Seems like the white sullys I read about way back when in the newspaper or something. Here is what little I could find about the white sully.

    The heaviest chicken is 22lbs. (10kg approx.) and belonged to Grant
    Sullens of West Point, California, USA. This breed of chicken is a'
    White Sully'. It is known to have a very mean temper as it has been
    reported to have killed two cats and wounded a dog.

    Big Snow, the largest chicken on record, weighed 23 pounds, 3 ounces,
    and was of the breed White Sully developed by Grant Sullens of West
    Point, California, USA, and was owned and bred by Ronald Alldridge of
    Deuchar, Queensland, Australia, Big Snow died of natural causes on
    September 6, 1992

    The second one I saw a link to on Feathersite but the link was broken so I couldn't find out anything else.

    I don't know why but this bugs me-- Just throwing this out in case somebody has something to fill in the gaps. --Wayne in Tn

    Since I posted this when I first started on BYC , Barry on Feathersite.com has added info about this breed.

    i had forgotten all about this post- But it seems like the teacher brought an article to my school in the 70 's and read it to us in class about these. I think that's where I first heard it but my memory is vague on it though and it's possible it was somewhere else I first heard about them. Seems like at the time the article said that these chickens had killed some dogs and some cats that wandered into their coop.
