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.
