I only have Water "Chickens."



Totally don't need any of those Colorful Rainbow Deathchickens! They're what convinced me that birds are related to dinosaurs

Whoa. I looked up the Colorful Rainbow Death Chicken, and I have to agree with you about dinosaur genetics. I'd hate to take on one of those in a bar fight! Good lord....

My Chicken Chickens prove dinosaur genetics to me, they are odd little beasties. When you see them stalk and hunt, you suddenly realize if they were seven feet tall, they'd be seriously dangerous.

Baby ducks always remind me of little raptors.

I was at the Florida State Fair on Saturday, by myself, because none of my "friends" wanted to be tortured by my lack of desire to see anything else but the chickens. I went early and got to have what my friends would have described as mind-numbing conversations (they're deep meaningful conversations! My friends are heathens) with fellow chicken-keepers. I met up with the breeder of the Champion of the Fair Buff Orpingtons, and I'm going to drive 1 1/2 hours at the beginning of March to get 3 from her. I don't have room for any more. I'm going to have to double the size of my coop. I really don't need any more chickens. But these I.Must.Have.

Love the chart. I know nearly all those chicken varieties, which is why my preferred breed is the chicken chicken.

I only have chicken-chickens, but I'd really like water-chickens! I like the 'all-terrain noise chickens'

I am frequently tempted to get some "all-terrain noise chickens," but then I remember just how noisy they are! My parent's neighbor has "all-terrain noise chickens," and it sure is a ruckus over there!

I think this concept needs expanding on!

Reposting the original picture that started this thread, broken link in the first post. Way too fun to disappear! I love all the chicken weirdness!
Still want to see more people add new ones!
