Cute! This is my favorite kind of chicken! It's called a, "Dominique." It lays large brown eggs and is supposed to be very docile and nurturing in its personality. Check it: http://www.mypetchicken.com/chicken-breeds/Dominique-B44.aspx
Check out this article from GRIT Magazine about heritage breeds! ----Heritage Breeds Can Be the Best Egg Laying Chickens. Rare domesticated animals need engaged stewards to survive. Raise heritage chickens and you’ll find some of the best egg laying chickens around.
CHICKEN CRACK BOTTLES Use a 1/2" drill bit to drill holes in empty plastic bottles, add chicken scratch (aka: chicken crack) and watch the fun break out! Provide several bottles to the flock at once to avoid conflict & fowl penalties.
