    What breed has been so uniquely selectively bred, in your opinion, that they barely resemble chickens anymore?
    Do you have one?
    If so, post a picture!

    Well, the first breed that pops into my head are silkies. I know their uniqeness makes them popular among many people, but it's also the reason they never had much appeal for me :D

    Probably the totally black chicken ( Cemani sp?)with black feather , skin, entrails, everything is black. Or the chicken bred with no feathers at all.
    Best,
