Frank came in with Pamela, one of the 46 chickens we received from an incident where a large crate of live birds fell off a truck (read about it here). 15 of those chickens died soon after, and 20 were “given” to a local farmer, and we received the remaining.

Like most white birds bred for their flesh, Frank has an unending appetite and a disproportionate body frame, but can be recognized by the red stripe on his back — we speculate a red feathered great-great grandfather from way back. To us, it shows that even after years and years of intentional breeding and genetic modifying, our powerful genes still find a way to make themselves known.
