I saw some at the Hants County Exhibition last September. They were part of a 4-H project so there must be a breeder here. I think they were from Cape Breton. Big girls tiny pink combs, seemed friendly too.

Right, I remember, I think I have the info in a PM you sent.
That's certainly closer.
They're extraordinary cold-weather birds. Good layers I hear. I rather like a pigmented bird and I understand they come in partridge, too.

An excellent history of the White Chantecler can be found here, http://www.cherrycreekcanadians.ca/chanteclerhistory.htm The Partridge Chantecler was created by Dr. J.E. Wilkinson of Alberta, Canada, and admitted to the APA standard in 1935. Dr. Wilkinson crossed the Partridge Wyandotte, Partridge Cochin, Dark Cornish, and the Rose Comb Brown Leghorn to create his breed. Dr. Wilkinson wanted the breed to be called the Partridge Albertan. However, the APA noted that the cushion comb and reduced wattles greatly resembled the other Canadian breed, the Chantecler, and admitted it as that breed, but with a Partridge colour. Dr. Wilkinson continually tried to have the name changed until his death. Technically, they are different breeds and the true, original Chantecler is the White Chantecler.
