    So what's up? Are these the "rare breed" this person is claiming? It was posted in my local backyard pet chickens group, and I've never heard of a Brakel chicken (but I haven't hear of a whole bunch of other breeds either)
    Also, how can this person tell they're roosters? They look too young to tell (at least to my untrained eye)

    Texas Kiki Did you candle today?

    I've never heard of this type before. Pretty big Combs and a rooster stance on the far right bird, although that could just be right when the picture was taken.


    What do you mean by posted on your local group, Craigslist?

    The Brakel is an extremely rare Belgium breed similar to the Campine.
    Greenfire Farms hasn’t sold Brakels in a while but if you are able to keep cockerels/cocks where you live you should definitely take them.

    No problem. I so badly wish I could get my hands on some of them.

    They might not be the sharpest tool in the shed.... They might be trying to trick someone. :oops:
