Gold Duckwing Sulmtaler.The Sulmtaler is a rare and ancient chicken breed from the Styrian region of Austria. Among the forests and vineyards of this remote and fertile province the Sulmtaler grew to be renowned for its round, muscular body and the extraordinary quality of its meat.
Speckled Sussex have everything: they are great layers of tinted or light brown eggs--and they lay right through the coldest weather. They are dual purpose birds, though: fat-bodied and not prone to flying when mature, so they are easily fenced. In England, they used to be THE standard table bird, before the modern Cornish Crosses came along. They forage well and are economical eaters that are friendly and easily handled.
