Another special feature is that it has five toes and tufts of feathers on its beak and legs as well.
It arrived in Europe following the old Silk Road and immediately won the sympathy of local poultry farmers who also use it as a nurse for other poultry species, given its good nature in taking care of the offspring.
Its docile character then made it an excellent pet, the softest garden host there is.
