Top 12 Utterly Bizarre Chicken Breeds
A Black-Breasted Gold Onagadoricock. | For The Imperial garden of Japan, the family wanted something different - Roosters of this breed sport a crazy tail that can grow more than 20 feet long! In order to keep them pristine, beautiful, and with unbroken tail feathers these chickens were treated like royalty. They still strut around the Imperial Garden.
Silver Laced Wyandotte Chicken Breed
Wyandotte Chicken--we ordered 3 of these ladies yesterday (as chicks, of course). Changed our mind at the last minute about the breed. This breed is supposed to be calm and friendly, a prolific layer, looks pretty (my requirement) and is a rare heritage breed (bart's requirement). Can't wait to pick them up and get them in the coop for Rose to play with!
Chicken Breeds Common in Australia
Rhode Island Reds are one of the most popular chicken breeds in the world. Developed in America, they lay a large amount of rich medium brown eggs per year. They are often used to create sex-linked chickens where the roosters are different colors from the hens for easy sorting when they are chicks. Their rich red color makes them a beautiful choice for a backyard chicken coop. They are hardy birds and easy to keep.
