A type of chicken, native to Scotland, that's now under threat with extinction, and protected by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.
Scots Grey's are excellent dual-purpose birds, producing well-flavoured flesh, and the hens around 150 large pale cream coloured eggs each year. They aren't reknowned for their broodiness, however, often deserting the nest after 10 or 12 days.
Both the males and females have steel-grey plumage with black barring, and a straight single red comb and pink-white legs and feet - spotted with black. For more information contact - 21 Kerswell Avenue, Kaimend, Carnworth, Lanark, Strathclyde, ML118LE. See 'Rare Breeds Survival Trust'.
