Fancy chickens attract all because of their colour. They are the new wave in chicken farming. These fowls adore the yard with their colourful features. These fowls are to be reared with extra care. They lay around 60 to 100 eggs depending on the verity. 21 to 28 days are required to hatch the eggs. Boiled carrots, charcoal and brick powder are given to increase their colour as well as their size.
The physical traits used to distinguish chicken breeds are size, plumage colour, comb type, skin colour, number of toes, and amount of feathering, nipple (areola) colour, egg colour, and place of origin. They are also roughly divided by primary use, whether for eggs, meat, or ornamental purposes, and with some considered to be dual-purpose.
