    Here is a picture of a small project I will hopefully be working on, she is rumpless. This bird is from stock of the late Dr. Albert McGraw from Georgia or Alabama. His son still hatches and sells birds but 25 chicks were way too many to raise just for 1 or 2 keepers. I got this off of someone I have known for a couple of years.

    Picture removed: Not good ethics to show birds I have bought.

    I have barbanters and just love their spangles.

    Thanks everyone you are so kind. Remember I did not breed this bird but I was just lucky to find her. I am still looking for a chocolate bird that is sexlink recessive. HS

    Lol doc, I was going to ask the same question about the crest. Very pretty bird, it will be interesting to see more like her. Once they are established maybe work on gold spangled?

    I would really love to see some spangled araucanas! And crested rumpless could be a lot of fun, too. [​IMG]
