    Do you go for the more farm bred chickens in your yard ? Or do like a little flavor in your flock ?

    I love my Turkish Malays. Tall skinny exotic game birds.

    I have 2 phoenixes that I got as hatchlings. Unfortunately they are both female. Still beautiful though!

    These are my Malays. Breeding pair is all I could afford.Very hardy birds. I don't let them mingle with my other chickens because at a month old he tried to fight my established alpha rooster. this is Ali & Ali's Lady (the lighter colored one is the rooster)

    I would say the most "exotic" I have ever owned would be my Golden Spangled Hamburgh, and I'm pretty sure he's wasn't very exotic.

    We have Seramas which I don't think are -that- exotic but someday in the fairly distant future when we have a larger property I have been daydreaming about having a trio of Asils. I just can't get over the fact they look like dinosaurs! Obviously they'd need their own pen as the rooster would kill anything else that crows... hence the need for a larger property.... SIGH
