Chinese silk chicken


Chinese silk chicken (Gallus gallus f. dom.)

Half chicken, half rabbit?

In the Middle Ages, this breed of chicken, originally from China and Mongolia, was presented in the circus for a long time as a crossbred between rabbits and chickens. The „plush impression“ comes from the fact that the
contour feathers lack the hooks on the secondary branches that normally connect the feathers to form a coherent surface.
