My family has never been active in the poultry-raising world...However, we used to own a couple Polish hens that were given to us by some neighbor farmers. We fed them chicken feed and let them roam around the yard. There really was nothing special about them for us - that is, they weren't really pets, but we weren't selling eggs or showing them either. However, they did look fascinating. Chickens with afros are definitely a conversation starter. Also, they were able to hold their own against our dogs, which was great.
