I have to say I love the look of the traditional birds - the ones that look like proper chickens - especially the Sussex.
The Orpington gives me the willies - how can a thing like that live?
And as for the Houdans, the Silky and the Frizzle - surely these were invented for Star Trek or The Muppets?
Apparently, the Naked Necks are ideally suited for hot, dry conditions because their very nakedness helps them to keep cool. So, ideal for here, or Central and Southern Spain, but I dunno..... a bit too weird for me, I think.
Betcha can't wait for a taste of my duck book, can you?
