A Little About the Scots Dumpy

The Scots Dumpy has ancient origins, but in recent years has become popular and thanks to a band of enthusiasts who appreciate this unique bird, it can now be seen in healthy numbers at many poultry shows throughout the country as well as being kept in small numbers in back gardens.

This beautiful bird, tragically nearly disappeared for good a hundred or so years ago. In the 1970s a dedicated band of breeders in Scotland succeeded in getting the breed established once again and since then it has gone from strength to strength. Many breeders keep Scots Dumpies for the pleasure of seeing their short-legged waddling gait, but they are truly a utility breed, good layers, very docile and with wonderful brooding abilities, also their short legs won’t scratch up your garden! Main colours: Black and Cuckoo. Size Large and Bantam.
