They need more poultry breeders to breed them if they are going to survive. They need shade so the sun doesn't change their color. They need perches far from the wall in their hen house because of their long tail feathers.

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. The males are aggressive. They are a good brooding chicken and were used to brood and hatch chicks. They can have rose or single combs.  They usually stay close in a group. Their eggs are usually more fertile and more hatch likely 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 life span is 5 – 10 years. They are incubated 21 days. Is is estimated that there are only 1,000 or less left.

I am not doing bronze the metal I am doing bronze the turkey breed. They lay large eggs. Their eggs are pale cream with spots. It is the most popular turkey for American history. Their use is meat. They are named bronze because of the shimmering green bronze color. They require artificial insmentation to breed. Their has been a decline in the bronze turkeys because company's want white turkeys to hide the feathers. The bronze turkey is easier to take care of then the white. The name “bronze” didn't appear until 1830s. They were known by late in 1700s. They were officially recognized by the American poultry association in 1874. there are to bronze turkeys slandered bronze and bronze breasted. They are medium to large sized birds.
