    I've just returned from a few days in Paris, and I stumbled on this amazing old taxidermy shop. They had all sorts of amazing animals, including a nice selection of chickens. They had an old Frizzled Brahama as well. Do these still exist? Do we have them in the US? I suppose it wouldn't be terribly hard to "make" them with a frizzled cochin. Maybe I need yet anther project....

    He looks like he is wearing an ill-fitting toupe! I think I'll stick with the regular brahmas. Thanks for sharing though!

    Maybe this is what I will do with my excess roosters! I have a taxidermist friend back in the US who tells me chickens are quite easy to mount. Here's one more pic. You can see the back of the Brahma behind the others.

    Quote:Ha ha. His hair was quite messy. I'm not sure how old he was. He cost almost 2,000 Euro, so I'm assuming it was quite an antique. (I really wanted the Polar Bear, but I didn't have 45,000 Euro extra with me)
