    Those roosters look so proud of themselves! I love the tail feathers in the first picture. Beautiful birds.

    Very pretty birds. Do you raise them for eggs or for meat? Or both?

    Hi @Baymule :frow,
    Yes, they know the beauty of their bodies and their feathers, especially the rooster.

    @babsbag
    Thank you :)

    This chicken is usually not raised for meat or eggs, just as a hobby for raising chickens. And some of them enter beauty competitions and levels.

    In the US chickens are almost always raised for eggs and meat. Some are genetically bred to get big fast...the Cornish Cross for one...and they are butchered at about 8 weeks of age. Many chickens are dual purpose, eggs and meat. There are some breeds that don't lay well and are raised for show but for me I raise chickens that lay eggs almost every day.

    Hello .. @babsbag :frow

    Yes, but we do not have all the breeds to eat, we have breeds to eat Dutch and American and other types I do not know their names.
    But this is the chicken that is at the exhibition only for production and decoration, because it is small in size and its eggs are small too.
