I have 3 Sumatran chicks! Full of life and grow very quick, although no idea what sex they are at 8 weeks.

I keep 3 breeding groups of Sumatras in all 15 birds and of all my breeds I rate Sumatras as one of the most elegant and beautiful.
They are good layers of white eggs and will brood anything including ornamental pheasants.
They are hardy and easily tamed enjoying free-range and wandering around the garden.

The boys are divine. I love that long game fowl shape and the draping tail. I wish I could keep cockerels! The girls just arent that showy. :love7:

Beautiful birds. I have never kept Sumatras but is it true that they are very hardy and long-lived birds?
