    CHANTECLER I am looking for other people that have these rare birds, so we can share our ups and downs.[​IMG] I have been having a hard time finding others that have Chaneclers. If you could I would love to here from you.

    I've just a got a little red girl from Ideal. She's not standard, and the color is way off, but she sure is a cutie. And while she's not the sweetest bird, Riley is the biggest scaredy cat you've ever seen - I'm surprised she even comes up to me, seeing as how she screams at her own shadow!!

    I do not raise this breed though I have had 3 buffs and must say they were some of my very favorite birds to own of all time. [​IMG]

    Just adding, mine were not at all flighty. Just big pets.

    Even as scared as Riley is, she's still sweet. She does come up to me and eat out of my hand. I'm hoping she'll get a bit better with time and more handling. She has about the same temperament as my spitzhauben, only less flighty.
