Some chickens are noble models of their heritage breeds. Some chickens are designed to lay at peak efficiency, with no care given to their scrawny looks. Some chickens lay colourful eggs. Some chickens excel at raising young. And some chickens are just pure eye candy.

Lawn ornaments, as B would say.


This little pullet is Vorwerk x Turken x Silkie. Dark purple to black skin, a svelte naked neck, iridescent earlobes, and buff with black points, she just started laying medium sized creamy white eggs. Ain’t she purdy?
