    Hi all, I have recently picked up two sultan hens. I've been curious about what the accepted "standard" for sultans is.
    I heard there is no SOP for Sultans, that they aren't recognized. Am I missing it? Seems there should be one. If there truly isn't, are there specific traits breeders select for anyway?

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

    Yep, they've got nice, small V combs....

    Looks like tomorrow is gonna be "how to bathe a rather annoyed chicken" day.

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