    * LOL-- It's ugly, and illegal to own. Sorry.[​IMG] (Ed: Oh, and, I forget what's called. . . But, apparently, it looks more like an owl than a chicken. [​IMG] )

    Personally, i think showgirls and turkens are the weirdest looking chickens. People just do a double take when you see them!

    Or maybe those completely naked chickens........whatever they are. :hmm

    Naked-neck chickens (Turkens) by far!! I just got two of them. They are about 5 weeks old now. They are so ugly, they are cute!! Only a momma could love. Ha! You should google them to see a picture.

    Well, if you live in a city, just staying the phrase "I raise chickens" get's more than one head turn.

    * None of those is as weird-looking as the owl-ie thing. Darn!! Wish I could remember what it was called!!

    Silkies and modern bantams usually do it for me. Turkens are quite the head turner as well. Also, I find that anything laced, especially silver laced sebrights are very popular. I had a ton of people try to buy a pair off me a few years fair simply because they loved their coloring.
  10. a turken or show girl. definitely will get looks with those.

    the crested varieties get double takes too...polish, sultans...etc.

    I can't think of any others.
