    That's great! Those are so rare. You could probably sell chicks for $15 each...

    Yeah, they don't look like the layer type (on the stocky side). Also, the rooster looks like he has rather poor ear tufts. Maybe that's just the angle, tho'.

    Do you have any pictures of their eggs? Aren't their eggs suppose to have different patterns on them or something like that?

    The OP is in Canada, where Hungarians are indeed available. In the US we'd have to get them imported I believe.


    Pretty birds. I expected a diluted/cream bird though.

    Quote:Those are not feather tufts (something they should not have. Rather the feathers that cover the ear all chickens have these)

    I can not say where they came from. Only that this breed is used for studies [​IMG]

    Quote:Oh no, I remember some people in California where I grew up raised them, so they are here just pretty rare. I was about 5 or 6 so I don't remember them all the well but I think the eggs had a striped kind of pattern if I remember correctly

    Quote:Sorry no pictures of the eggs yet. Although you can clearly tell that the eggs are laid from different hens though. I find these eggs crack length wise a lot of the time
