About Sultan Chickens
have a unique look and are mostly used as show birds. They are small chickens
and their heads are completely covered in feathers to create the appearance of
a globular feather poof atop their head. They don't have wattles, instead they
have a sort of three-part feather beard. Their tails are well-spread and
carried medium high. And they have blue feet that are completely covered by
feathers, though what makes this strange is that they have five toes rather than
the standard four.
Sultans are easy
going and easy to keep, despite the added maintenance needed due to their extra
feathering. Because of their facial feathering, Sultans will need a special
drinker, such as a water tower. Because of the feathers on their feet, they do
best in clean, roofed-in runs, though it's not advised to place perches too
high for roosting.
