    Can anyone tell me anything about this breed? Preferrably the Rosecomb variety.

    We shall see, I've googled them but can't find anything about the bantams. Of course if they are from the ALBC they may be rare. [​IMG] I'll check their site. I checked the ABA site and AlBC and found nothing.

    FYI those who missed the conference, you missed an excellent time, BIG TIME.

    I have 2 brown rosecomb leghorns! From personal experience, they are not my favorite breed. They are smaller, very flighty and skiddish. I will never again get them. I got them because I heard they are great layers, and the turned out not so great! But the lay white eggs. Beautiful birds though, that's why I keep them around. If they can free range they do really well, but panic when anyone goes in the coop. The Roosters are gorgeous!

    We had a pair about six to seven months old - absolutely gorgeous! They did not have a rosecomb. The *only* reason I sold them was that they were so skittish and panicky that after a month of being cage kept I was pretty convinced I wasn't going to be able to tame them down. He actually slipped past me twice, he was quick! The rooster was exceptionally beautiful and had a tail that would make anyone take a second look. Hopefully you can find some that are more calm by nature. Also, my bantam leghorns were not what I would call exceptionally small. Good luck finding your perfect birds! [​IMG]

    I have the perfect birds, they are my Delawares. These were won in a silent auction.
