i was at the farm show,They had these huge chickens,couple different kind,they were like1 1/2 ft long,beautiful,I want to get like 6 wouldnt that make a beautiful flock?
Well, 'huge' chickens' could cover a lot of ground. But the biggest ones I ever saw were at a county fair, and I immediately fell in love with them, they were like big ol' dogs. They were Giant Cochins or Brahmas, I forget which, but they were gorgeous! :)
Here's feathersite's page for Brahmas:
I want some of each... *L*
I like the look of those blue partridge brahmas! They sure are beautiful and they have small combs too, another plus! I would love to raise several differenet types of specialty pure breeds. I'd like to start a specialty hatchery and sell them. Maybe when I have more time...
runningtrails, you and me both! I'd LOVE to have a place where I start a specialty hatchery...
How did you like that rooster, 'Big Boy' on the Brahma page?!
I didn't see one named "Big Boy" on either page. I looked a second time too. How far down is he? I'll look again.
It's too bad you don't live closer, Velvet! I have the buildings, land and location, near the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) - just no the time. Maybe I should specialize instead of trying to do a dozen different things. It sure is inconvenient having a job - it interferes with my life. lol
Velvet: went to the Brahma web site-OMG I saw the one rooster called Big Bird-now I am not scared of anything-but he was the hugest chicken I have ever seen. Can you imagine the feed bill for that big boy and his hens!! LOL He looked to be as tall as me again lol because I am only 4"10 half-I would rather not be able to look a chicken in the eye unless they were on a roost!!! :)))))--he was absolutely beautiful and scary at the same time-thanks for posting the website!
thanks I was thinking of the chickens called Jersey Giants,the biggest american breed.Now where can I get about 8?
well I wanna see the big chicken too. can you send a link? or did i miss it?
Runningtrails I have to agree with you my job gets in the way of my life too. LOL But Thank God I have a job. Don't want to jinx myself...
I MISSED IT BUT NOW i FOUND IT. HMMMMM THAT IS A HUGE CHICKEN!!!
