Sultans are a very old breed which originated in Southeastern Europe. They get their peculiar name because they were once favored by the rulers of Turkey. Sultans came from Istanbul to England in the 1850's. This extremely rare breed has a crest, muff, beard, feathered shanks, and a fifth toe.

Customer Product Reviews
Sweetest of them all, my Sultan hen needs to be looked out for a bit. She doesn't quite fit in with the flock, but loves me and keeps trying. She will be fine, I insist on it because she's not going anywhere! A real pet.
I have a sultan, Flo. She is like the cat of chickens, very friendly and loves to follow me around the yard at my feet. A great breed :)
I just got four Sultan chicks and they are adorable.They are the rowdiest little things I've ever seen, but they are a lot of fun to play with. they have the cutest little puffy heads. I can't wait till I can show them at fair.
I would not be without Sultans! They are the gentlest and most entertaining of chickens. They have a funny skipping walk , like little Charlie Chaplins, and, because their luxuriant feather topknot interferes with their vision, they seem always surprised when they stumble into a fence or wall. Quite apart from the eggs, they earn their keep many times over with all the laughs they provide.
We have a Sultan Hen and she is so great! She follows us all around and loves to sit with us. She lays alot of eggs everyday, even in winter. She is the best! We love her.
