    Hi all, I have recently picked up two sultan hens. I've been curious about what the accepted "standard" for sultans is.
    I think there is no SOP, but am wondering about what most of y'all try to select for..... I know vulture hocks, 5 toenails on each foot, full crest, low-set wings, feathered shanks/feet, etc are desirable traits.

    What skin color do they have? Eye color?

    And why isn't there a sultan SOP? It seems like there should be one....Am I missing it?


    Pics of the birds I got.... They need a bath.

    Have you asked Pyxis? I believe she hatched some Sultans recently...
