The Sulmtaler chicken knows how to set itself apart from the rest of its feathered friends in the farm yard. The noblest among all the chickens has reinvented the concept of "species-appropriate free-range husbandry". The Sulmtaler lives in small flocks, in weather-proof stables that afford a home worthy of his majesty. Sufficient daylight, a great deal of fresh air and superior hygienic standards are the givens for the Sulmtaler's way of life. One rooster usually lives together with ten hens, and it is a common affair that the farmer calls his roosters and hens by their names. Our majesties feel best in meadows and pastures with adequate options for shelter. In poor weather, our chicken highnesses prefer their own room inside for scratching the ground.
