Standard Varieties of Chickens:

Ornamental Poultry


The Standard recognizes several varieties of poultry which are purely ornamental in character and purpose. They can not be considered as prolific either for eggs or table purposes, being bred solely for fancy purposes.

The following images come from the FeatherSite, "an on-line zoological garden of domestic poultry". These images point to pages describing interesting varieties of poultry, which may or may not be bred for ornamental purposes. Some pages to visit include the Cubalayas page, the Appenzeller Spitzhauben page, the Araucanas (Easter Egg Chickens) page, the Egyptian Fayoumi (or Bigawi) page,and the The Fabulous Faverolles page.
