PostSubject: Show us your poultry!   Sun Mar 18, 2012 9:56 pm

Ladies and gentlemen, the chicken has landed.

It's that time of year again... eggs, fluffy yellow chicks, gallinaceous ornaments galore. A local shop started selling these fairly nice but badly painted figurines, so obviously I had to pick up a few to repaint!

I found a book on poultry breeds of the world (a must in any well-stocked library Wink ), and apparently that's all it takes to get me hooked. It doesn't hurt that this is one animal that is quite easy to find in model form...

The brown Schleich hen I already had, but she didn't really come into her own until I got her Bullyland friend. There's something in their attitude..

Tinies! The made in China cheapo is way nicer than the Bullyland micros, really detailed.

This guy is just weird.

Anyway... *drumroll* Let the thread commence? Or are you... chicken? lol!

I enjoy watching chicken collection, they are very cute :) Some of these models I see first time. The rooster looks really funny Very Happy
I don't have any hen in my collection. My son has 2 or 3 though so I may take photos of them :) He had really beautiful CollectA rooster but unfortunately lost it somewhere...
I think any birds which I could count as poultry are my mallard ducks and goose by schleich but I use to think they were wild Laughing

Ooh, I like those Schleich variations! I'm currently repainting mine into a what is essentially another version of the same color.

What a great idea to re-paint a rooster !

The old poultry from Schleich Very Happy

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Many of these old ones came in box, but they are darned expensive, so I have only this one, because she is one of the Schleich I love most Very Happy

Lots of good ones so far, I like those Bully ones and the Papo. Is this chickens only or +turkeys?
Ducks and geese a different thread some time? I will have to pull together a photo, I have s few interesting chickens.

The same here even I'm enjoying seeing yours. I don't have a single chicken. Many foxes here! affraid
I'm more used with scientific classifications, like Galliformes (Chickens, turkeys, grouses, pheasants, peafowls, etc) or Anseriformes (ducks, geese, swans). They are very distinct groups, I guess! :)

Shocked these are amazing!!!! the white pair are works of art! their paint might not be "realistic" but it's brilliant. The black one is very striking.

What a lovely show of Chickens!

To us, "Poultry" is everything that you would find in a poultry yard. So we unpacked the Ducks, Geese, Turkeys, Guinea Fowl and Pigeons ... and packed them all away again ...

Back in 1956, Lesley was given this family of White Leghorns for her birthday. They are metal figures from the "Prize Poultry" section of the old Britains Farm range.

Here they are with a Schleich Zebra to show scale.

They are WONDERFUL , Sue and Lesley cheers

I can`t believe that there are so many of the old metal ones from Britain, - the chickens are absolutely delightful ! And the one nesting ! drunken
And it seems that by them they could make defferent breeds Suspect

Thankyou for sharing from your enormous treasure of models again flower

Yesss!!!! Then my memory isn`t quite gone...I was sure that at some time I learned that "Poultry" was just as you describe : The feathered ones that the farmer`s wife went out to feed in the morning...ducks and geese and turkeys included cheers

I hate the word poultry, but here are the birds that live happily in my farm sanctuary :)

That brown one in the front nearly missed the photo shoot but luckily she's a good runner!
All Schleich, except for those 2 small Starlux ones.
