Does anyone have any information on Denizli chickens? Anyone here keep them ?
Ahhhhh! Those are the so called "Long Crowers"! heh... I never heard their real name before! No idea, except, I wouldn't want em! Normal Crowers work for me!!! little joke there, I can see the interest value.
the popcorn munching means he's camped out waiting to see what people say cause they're interested!
hehe.. me too since I know so little about them!
Someone found an ad on ebay last year and posted it. I bid and ended up winning them. I only had one hatch and it was a boy. He was very skittish and reminded me of a game bird. I lost him with my other birds back in the spring.
He had started crowing quietly and for around 7 to 10 seconds. It was cute.
This is a bit of a stale thread, but I did want to post the best link I've ever seen for information on the Denizli breed. It is actually a Turkish tourist info website; but, the author is from Turkey and it certainly reads like it was well researched even if it doesn't cite any references.
I'd love to get them, but I'm afraid my wife would send them strait to the stew pot after the first crow. If I knew I could get one with a soft crow, I'd probably get by with it.
What I was wondering about is if they may have been developed out of the Faoumi, at least in part. The ones available on ebay seem to bear a definite resemblance. Of course, they may have been the logical choice to breed them to if too small of a population were brought into the US to start with.
but too bad i wouldn't be ale to hide one of them... but i'm sure the city code guy wouldn't recognize that as a rooster...
There's a guy in Texarkana(spelling?) Ark that raises them and advertise them on some bird auctions. I can't wait to get some!
The only long crower's I can find for sale are tomaru,so I ordered some. If any one finds denizli I would be very interested in some stock.thanks for your help
