Pictured here are Jumbo Cornish Game hens, Buff Orpingtons, Red Stars and Silver Laced Wyandottes. The one in the foreground with the black and copper feathers and the crazy head feathers is most likely a Polish chicken. She/he is the "free exotic chicken" included in my order--sometimes referred to as a "packing peanut." I'm not looking for a rooster, so I'm hoping that she/he is really a she. Time will tell.
The middle grade novel I am writing includes chickens. These girls have been a lot of research help. Wonder if they can help with the revisions.
