Owl Beard?  On a chicken?

How about an Ameraucana or an EE?

From feathersite.

If you search Owlbeard chicken in Google images you see that they're usually a patterned (usually spangled) white bird with beard/muffs and a V comb. Very neat.

I don't think they're available in the US though. A lot of rare European breeds like Breda fowl and such just aren't, never have been.

Also known as the Nederlandse Uilebaard. Oldest dutch breed around.

Some European sits mention that they may have bred Owl Beard in crossing to bring back the Brabanter.  They do look similiar with the forked comb, muffs and beards etc.  I wish my Brabanters had the beautiful white coloring.
