    Please look for the new site campines.tumblr.com.

    It's concise but revealing ... and there's still much to come.

    Plus! I know it's difficult to find a Campine breeder, really anywhere. So I added a page for all Campine breeders to leave their coordinates. Hopefully this will help a great deal.

    And also hopefully it will help me introduce the Campines back again in their native Belgium, since they've been gone here for almost 7 decades or more...

    All input and critics are welcome.

    Heel low:

    Thanks for doing up this website...I do not have the breed but admire it! [​IMG]

    You asked for input...

    David Scrivener, Rare Poultry Breeds, (2006) page 24:
    I am not sure when the original Campine breed was first recognized in North America.

    No worries really as I am told that the "Buff" turkey was dropped too from the APA SOP's...and it was never re-instated. The Jersey Buff (which is NOT a pure self-buff like the original turkey) was never accepted either. I have both of these colour patterns in our heritage turkey flocks and it makes no difference to me if the variety is recognized or not. I like what I like! [​IMG]

    Thanks.
    I didn't add the info about the Campine first being dropped, thought it didn't sound good. But you're absolutely right, standards schmandards.

    The full text about their recognition reads like this:

    Quote: So the first appearance in the APA is also from 1893.
