About Scots Dumpy ChickensAbout Scots Dumpy Chickens

Scots Dumpy chickens are from Scotland. The expression "dumpy" means short and stout which described these chickens because they are have a thick-set appearance and extremely short legs. Throughout history they have been known under many names such as: Bakies, Stumpies, Dadlies, Hoodies, or Creepies. They are classed as an endangered breed by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.  

Their short legs are their most defining characteristic, and it gives them a waddling gait. Adult Scots Dumpys are less than 5 centimetres (2 inches) off the ground and they long in the back and have a lower set tail than most breeds.  

There are no set colors for the Scots Dumpys, but Cuckoo, Black, and White are the most common. Other patterns/colors occur as sports, or are bred into the phenotype by fanciers.  

They are a docile breed on the whole, but with any chicken males can be aggressive. Hens are good layers of light off-white to tinted-colored eggs, and are said to make a good meat bird.
