Manx Rumpy chickens- looking for other breeders

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

We are looking for other breeders that raise Manx Rumpy chickens. We have a small flock of these rare chickens and are looking for other breeders so we can acquire some new bloodlines.

Thanks

Hi.  I had no idea what that type of chicken was and went to your website to view photos.  Wow!  Quite a collection of animals, but I didn't find the rumpies...  Do you have pics?  Thanks.

Thank you. We moved / still moving most everything from WI to SD, it is not an easy project moving into a old, what word am I looking for-- lets go with "rustic"  homestead that has not been kept up for many years. It will be a couple years before we get this place in order.

I will try to get some photos of the Manx Rumpies posted. In the mean time, there are some photos listed with our Manx Rumpy auction on ebay. Not sure if this link will work:

To me the Manx Rumpy are about the same as Rumpless Araucanas, but do not have ear tuffs or beards and don't generally lay green eggs.

But they are very colorful and unique.

lol I thought it was a breed you made up, but then I found this: wikipedia.org

Manx Rumpy
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Manx Rumpy
Other names Rumpless Game
Persian Rumpless
Classification
ABA 

[show]Traits
Weight Male 5.5 pounds (2.5 kilos)
Weight Female 4.5 pounds (2 kilos)

The Manx Rumpy, also called the Rumpless Game,[1] is a breed of chicken which lacks a tail and rump. Unlike the Manx cat and tailless poultry that were common on the Isle of Man in 1871,[2] the Manx Rumpy does not actually originate from the Isle of Man, but none the less was so named because of its resemblance to the Manx cat, which also lacks a tail.[3] Manx Rumpies are a very old breed from the Persian Gulftheir first name in English was the Persian Rumplessbut they are rare in the West.[4]

Manx Rumpies are among only a few other tailless breeds, most notably the Araucana and the Belgian d'Everberg. They do not grow a tail because they lack the vertebrae that most chickens have. Most have single combs, and red earlobes. Appearing in a wide variety of colors, the breed is recognized officially in British poultry standards. On realizing that that these bantams live without tail feathers to escape foxes, Kent Poultry Club chairman Dudley Mallett gave the tiny chickens the name Rumpless Game Bantams.[1] U.K. standards call the birds Rumpless Games, and they more closely resemble an Old English Game in that nation.[5] The breed has never been accepted in to the American Poultry Association's Standard of Perfection.[6]

A relatively light-weight fowl, males weigh 5.5 pounds (2.5 kilos) and hens weigh 4.5 pounds (2 kilos). Manx Rumpy hens are good layers of brown eggs, and may also occasionally lay white, blue, or green eggs. They do have a tendency to go broody, but the breed's fertility is generally low. Behaviorally, they do very well in free range conditions.[7]

I believe Sandhill preservation sells the breed.
Have you considered them?
