    Most of those are extrememely rare if not nonexistant in the USA. You SHOULD be able to find (with a lot of searching) Vorwerk, Scots Dumpy, and Scots Grey in the US though, I've at least heard of those lol.

    In Europe.
    I often see several of those breeds in poultry magazines and books from Europe. I would have no clue where you'd find them here.

    Ooooooo, I want a Scots Dumpy just for the name alone! [​IMG]

    I've seen info about Kraienkoppe somewhere, but I don't remember where. If it's other name is Twentse, then I bet it's a South African bird (Kraienkoppe sounds Dutch, Twenste sounds African -- and Dutch + African = South Africa -- just guessing!). Never heard of the others!

    The Satsumadori sounds like a Japanese breed. Hmmmm... another "reason" to get more chickens [​IMG]

    Well, it turns out I got the Dutch part right, but not the African part. Oh well! [​IMG]

    In case you're interested, the Kraienkoppe was developed along the Dutch/German border. Tall, long-legged bird.

    Sandhill Preservation in Iowa has silver kraienkoppes.

    They also have manx rumpies which are similar to rumpless game.

    bantam vorwerks should be somewhat easy to find, they were developed in minnesota. there's a breeder from co or wy that puts some on eggbid every so often.
