    Another of my birds

    This is Hakuro, Hakuraikou's brother. He had a washing on Wednesday and yesterday was oiling day. I also made a video. Some jerk on youtube accused me of my birds being "fake".

    First, he's too rare. Second, if I had to replace him, it's far too expensive. Third, his drum stick is only about the size of my thumb. Despite his head looking like a chicken, he's technically not. He stems from complicated hybrids of oceanic archipelago fowl. So he eats sea food and rice, not corn. Corn is toxic to him. : )

    They usually grow approximately three feet per year, but last month he put on 4.5". So it can vary.

    Cool, how are they temper-wise? Our RIR got way to uppity to be keeping around (we've a 7yo, cat, and small dog that he'd attack on sight).

    We've got a dozen (or so) Polish Top Hats hen chicks new this spring, and a dozen or so more that are looking for homes.

    Wife's actually building the chicken coop and run herself as I'm pretty much useless from an intercostal tear. Yes, my wife is constructing. AND she's doing an awesome job of it. Eat your hearts out guys, next up on her list is a GH.

    Pretty much what you see there in the vid is how they are. They're just very que sera sera and do next to nothing all day. Males of these can even be housed together as long as there are no hens in sight. These are over all very different fowl though. They aren't for chicken coops, free ranging, or egg production. They excel at neither of those things.
