    Hi there James.. I actually grew up on Tamworth - well on a farm just outside of it anyway...Nice place but I am down in Victoria now.

    I actually noticed you have a few on the list that we do have here in Australia.


    Black East Indies ducks are here- but few and far. There are a few breeders here in in Victoria and I recently saw some at a show.
    Magpie & Ancona ducks- Still mostly experimental breeding...but they are here in very small numbers.
    Show Girls - seen a few around
    Vorwerk's were on a fairly recent ABC program recreated here by a breeder I am told.
    Marans - very rare- but I have heard of some available for sale last year.
    Shamo..Again very rare- but I know of two people in other states that have them.

    Additionally many of your listed breeds are just commercial hybrids.
    Ameraucana are our Araucanas ,we do not have true Araucanas in Australia.
    Marans ,not Maran, are quite common & have a strong breed club.
    Shamo & American Game can also be found, as can La fleche & Redcaps.
    Showgirls are a Transylvanian X Silkie, both common. So are Auburn Turkeys,
    know nothing about the Waterfowl except the East Indies duck was a feature breed at a show in Victoria.
