    This might be a long shot but I'm looking for French Houdans, any color as long as they have leaf combs-not sure if anyone has any here in the US but if you do please let me know! Eggs/chicks/adults, doesn't matter. Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    I don't care about showing them, I appreciate the look of the breed-especially the uniqueness of the comb [​IMG]

    I heard Buttercups weren't all that hardy so I didn't pay them much mind but I do think they're pretty and had considered them awhile back. Do you know anyone/where with non-hatchery stock? We have quite a few breeds on the ALBC list inluding the la Fleche-they're my avatar [​IMG] They're some of my favs too, I love the little noises they make! Such a shame more people aren't into them.

    Quote:That's why I don't have them--just because our winters are so severe here....I'm not sure if Sandhill has them but their birds would be a better start than any of the other hatcheries....there might be someone on here that breeds them too....oh and Redcaps. I think there is someone breeding those.
