My big problem is that these were raised as house Chickens!!! So Im debating on whether or not to buy (or make) diapers for them and keep them inside with me! I have them in a pet cage right now and they are being so good! ....but I let them run on the porch while Im home ( hose down imminent).
Oh Lordy Lordy..... I just hope I do not come in contact with any Top Knots that need a home........ Whistling talk about Fickle!!!!!!! Big Grin

Truth should be everpresent.
Are they wearing diapers and joining you at the table for brunch?

They're BEAUTIFUL!!!

My one Blue is about right inbetween them in color. She moulted recently, and her pin feathers were gorgeous turquoise blue!

My other hen is pencilled, and they love to march around the kitchen floor, eating whatever gourmet stuff I've put down for them. And they love to sit on my knee, when I 'set' with them. Not too hard to tidy up after them if you don't leave them in too long. I use deep shredded paper for bedding, to keep those foot feathers nice.

I would have loved to have been able to get this breed. I considered it, then had to consider the many rainy, muddy days and those feathered feet. I'd be too afraid of the ladies staying too cold and wet when their feet & leg feathers got wet & muddy. Sad

I had read that was a consideration with the breed. But they are nice looking chickens.

My blue has amazing feathers on her feet, I'll have to take a photo--- I have only two hens(the other is pencilled) and they live in a dry little run, a big roof. Mud is bad!
