That’s Whacky!

What exactly is a wattle on a chicken? A wattle is a fleshy bit hanging from various parts of the head or neck in several groups of birds and mammals. In birds, wattles are often an ornament for courting potential mates. Large wattles are correlated with high testosterone levels, good nutrition, and the ability to evade predators, which in turn indicates a potentially successful mate. It has also been proposed that ornamental organs such as wattles are associated with genes coding for disease resistance. In umbrellabirds the wattle serves to amplify the birds’ call. Both male and female chickens have wattles, which help them to stay cool during warmer weather.


Amaretto likes to add new traits to the birds to keep them interesting. They celebrated Valentines Day on Feb 2nd 2019 and released Valentines Edition animals that you could purchase until Feb 15th 2019. There was a chance that you could get a brand new trait Whacky Wattle from any breeding of these 2019 Valentines Day Edition Barnyard Birds Chickens.
This was the the 13th trait added to the Barnyard Birds Chickens, the Whacky Wattle!
The Whacky Wattle DOES have the ability to pass!

I can’t wait to see what other new traits will show up on the Barnyard Birds, since Amaretto likes to surprise us!
