    who has quail antwerp belgiums? [​IMG]

    I love my pair! They are the most curious if all my chickens!

    Here's a pic of my Rooster Robert the Rocket! (got his name because he shoots straight out of the run!)

    His wings are long and straight? Is that particular to the breed? He is handsome!

    Quote:Yes, that is how his wings are supposed to be. His mate, Fran, just recently started her squatting.

    Quote:Funny you say that, I was recently at another BYC'ers home and asked if a pic on her wall was an Antwerp hen, she said nope, Americana!! LOL

    Fran only weighs about 20 ozs and fits in my hand. Robert is just a little bit bigger, and taller, and weighs about a pound and a half.

    I am really praying to get a clutch or two of babies from them. They are so tiny as babies!

    We had three, but the other little one didn't make it. I am so thankful that we ended up having a pair!

    I have a trio of show quality self blue d'Anvers. [​IMG] They are gorgeous, but mine dont trust people, and the rooster has terrible fertility.
