The Chicken Baby Breeds

I have had floods of questions about what type of chickens the girls are. Silly me forgot to tell you when I posted the girls’ picture.


So, the naked neck girl in front, Catherine the Great, is a Transylvanian Naked Neck. She’s a very, very old breed that they think originated in Asia. The two fuzz butts in the back, Georgina and Henrietta, are Chanteclers, a heritage breed from Canada.

We think miss Catherine will look something like this when she grows up.


And the fluff balls should look like this when they grow up.

They are such cute girls and so much fun!

Aawww, they are gorgeous and by summer they will roam your yard. I could watch chickens for hours inspecting every stone and bed...
Both are large breeds, aren't they? I have never heard of the Transylvanian naked neck, what an interesting breed - lol!
And the Chanteclers look quite regal in that gold color (also I guess the one in the photo is a rooster, according to the pointed feathers at the lower back)
I'm sure you will have lots of fun with them. Enjoy!
P.S. I'm still jealous and wish we'd have chicken again, too...sigh...

Wow, the Chanteclers almost look like they have long, silky-like fur! The feathers they drop can go into a lot of fun projects...
