    i have a friend in columbia who is giving me a free pair of gamefowl..
    he wants his breed to become known here and this gift is so i can
    show them around at poultry shows and online so others will purchase them..
    but i dont know how to import them to the US and dont have the money for it
    so anyone here know where i can get birds just like these since i really love this color in the US
    or anyone would like to cooperate on importing these birds and i can ask for a second male or have the hen since i have a perfect hen for this boy..i only would like the male..to show it

    this is a picture of the male he wants to ship to me

    I think the color is called Crele. It does exist in Old English Game Bantams in the US so I would expect you can find it in standard game birds as well.

    Yes, we do have those. It looks similar to a Crele Old English, but honestly - It looks more like a Brazilian to me. They often come in that color, especially when used for crossing with Shamos.

    Quote:It's Close to a Crele but not the same.

    The OP's bird is a Dominque Game Fowl and there called Doms for short and is known as a Crow/wing family where a Crele is Duckwing family.
    There the Original Dominque and IMO the Single Comb Dominque that was used to produce the Barred Plymouth Rock..

    The Original Dom were yellow and blue Dominiques, yellow legs and beak, with the cocks generally having white tails, speckled with blue or yellow. The hens were either solid blue with dark eyes, mottled, pale blue or nearly white.

    The color of the OP's bird is known as a Pumpkin.

    Yea they are expensive..for shipping alone im looking at 450 dollars..but someone else on another site told me I could receive the bird and keep him in quarintine at home and just have a vet come to my house from a local spca to check him..if this is possible I only pay the shipping since he is giving me the pair for free..
