    It's an exhibition quality Light Brahma. European/UK stock based on the vulture hocks. This is not your typical backyard bird - it would be very hard to acquire one of these unless you have an "in" with the show crowd and intend on seriously breeding them. Anyone who has a bird of this caliber is unlikely to sell their stock to just anyone, and in any case certainly not cheap.

    Is it really like 3 feet tall or is it just perspective?
