New for 2010! This exceedingly rare breed hails from Sicily as its name suggests. Its namesake, the buttercup-shaped comb, is totally unique in the poultry world. The American Standard of Perfection notes that 100% of the Buttercup stock in North America came from hatching eggs brought here in 1892. "Buttercups," as they're called, are good layers of a small-ish white egg.

Please note there is a 25-chick maximum on this breed.
