Buttercup

  • DSC02981
  • Chickens have a history in every part of the world. The Buttercup originated, in spite of its Sunnybrook Farm sort of a name, in Sicily. Its unique “buttercup” comb and beautiful feathering pattern makes it an excellent show bird. The comb is cup-shaped with regular points all around, unlike any other chicken I have seen. Hens and roosters can be differentiated at a glance by their different coloring. Roosters are a rich orange color and the hens are buff colored with the beautiful feather pattern.
