Ponape Rapanui Hatching Eggs
Will Ship To: USA
For Sale 12 or more Hatching Eggs. I'll send extras.
I'll have this breeding group together for a few months, so you can get them for as long as I have them available.
Please send me a PM with Ponape Eggs in the Subject line. This is the only breed I have set apart at this time.
If you want more than 12 we can work that out, just let me know.
The Ponape (Saudeleur line) is a Micronesian Gamefowl descended of the Violaceous Junglefowl (Gallus violacea Gould)and Austronesian Fighting Game. The Ponape is a wild race, completely naturalized as a feral bird in the interior island of Ponape (Pohnpei). Trapped by the islanders for their beautiful plumage, they are prized in Micronesian villages on the coasts.
This is an unusually graceful, light-weight breed, more junglefowl than chicken. The crow is pleasant and multi syllabic but the birds are not particularly vocal.
Many birds are black boned and hence invaluable for selection breeders using their genetic stock for the creation of Cemani.
Here is an article about Rapanui (the category that Ponape fall into) from last year:
