  1. Stopping in from Thursday Thirteen . . .

    wow, I never knew there were so many types of chickens and so beautiful too.

    From the pictures you posted, i think I like the Sultans the best.

  2. How fun is that! My children would love to do this! I wish we lived in an area that would allow it. Maybe one day!

  3. It wasn’t that long ago that I learned there were so many different breeds of chickens and I grew up on a farm with chickens – shows how much I paid attention…

  4. Interesting list. I’ve heard of some of these breeds before but not all of them. Happy TT.

  5. And all this time I thought a chicken was a chicken. Very educational!

  6. Awwww #4..bless his heart..he is such an ugly chicken.

    But #7..those chickens are beautiful! I have never seen them before..

    Can I come and visit! I love living like you all do:) We should be out of here in 3-4 years..we should walk away with $100,000.00 – $150,000.00 in our pocket and then we are going to build..on as much land as we can get our hands on..I am so tired of having neighbors so close..ya know?
    The first thing I want is CHICKENS!! I really enjoy fresh eggs. So who does the “ringy” of the necks in your family? Or is it still done that way? I haven’t had {fresh} chicken since my great-grandmother had her chicken farm.

    Have a great weekend!

  7. I love love Chickens love them all but especially # 1..

    Edited by Rhen~ Buff Orpingtons are my favs too. Beautiful, dual purpose and docile.
