---oo0oo--- POULTRY BREED PROFILES ---oo0oo---

Thank you to sigridpitkin and bantamboy for suggesting a great new concept of having "Breed profiles" for all the different poultry breeds. Some members have already done great descriptions and history on some breeds, which I have already linked. I am hoping other members will take on a breed from the list below, so we can get a comprehensive list going, and keep adding to it along the way :D

I am sure it will be very useful to all of us, especially newcomers or people who don't know a lot about other breeds. Please post on this thread what breeds you would like to start off with a profile, so we don't double up. Also I recommend saving it as a word document first (as a backup in case something happens to the internet while typing on the forum), then copying and pasting it across.

Things to include could be country or origin, benefits of breed, characteristics, colours, suitability, egg colour, where to get more info, rareity, what to look out for, where to find photos etc.

An example can be found here:

MONEY can't buy happiness....but it can buy CHOOKS, and that's pretty much the same thing
