    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.

    http://www.allaboutturkey.com/denizli_rooster.htm

    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.

    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!
