and of course red shoulder and white but those were listed in “ recognized variates are “. They are best when given large property to room around on. They are great mothers. Also for anybody out there who has broody chickens try keeping food and water away far enough that they well have to get up and walk around I think that should keep them from dieing from heart problems because when they get hungry or thirsty enough they well get off the eggs to get food making their heart not fragile. This goes for all chickens.

Nankin

By A.G







They are a chicken breed. They are one of the oldest known bantams. They were used to make sebrights. It is likely India introduced them to Britain. They are a hardy bird. They are slow to mature. Some of them are flighty. Some of them can be sweet and friendly. The males are aggressive. They are a good broody chicken and were used to brood and hatch chicks. They can have rose or single combs. They well run to a hen doing a distress call. They usually stay close in a group. Their eggs are usually more fertile and more hatch able if the hens are allowed to incubate. Their eggs are kind of round in shape like in other bantams this makes it harder for them to hatch. They are a true bantam breed. They are critical meaning they are in danger of extinction. Their are 17 true bantams. Their history has gone as far back as unknown records. Their life span is 5 – 10 years. They are incubated 21 days. Is is estimated that there are only 1,000 or less left.

1 the Cornish game

2 the Cornish jubilee. They are good free range birds don't scrounge well though. They are prone to parasites and can sometimes be aggressive. They are easy to handle. They have a cruel expression and big scary legs they look like dinosaurs the ones we have are far from it though. They chicks are more cannibalistic than other breeds. Their shape makes it so they tend to have fertility problems. They need space to move. They are so active its hard for the females to become brood hens but they still try ( usually there are exceptions for everything in birds). They are the ultimate meat bird. Their class is English. They are stocky. They have close fitting feathers. Their comb type is pea so they aren't very prone to frostbite on their comb. Most of the chicken meat that is bought in stores is white Cornish. They have health problems due to growing fast ( try not to get attached). They are on the bottom or at least near the end on the pecking order. When not covered in poop and dirt they can be beautiful ( mostly talking about the white ones right now because the other colors don't get stained as easily we have white ones no other color). They are hardy birds. They do not have feathers legs is probably obvious).
