    Went to visit an awesome breeder this afternoon (spent 3 hours there!), he raises and exhibits rare breeds - I was so impressed to see birds in real life that I had only ever heard about or seen on the internet before!

    Of course I didn't plan on bringing any girls home, it was only to get some information...

    But then he put this gorgeous, sweet as sugar, 6-month old pure white sultan in my arms and I fell in love [​IMG]

    She wasn't for sale (he refused to sell her over a dozen times) but felt that she would have the best possible home with me and so that was that! I didn't ask to buy her, she was offered to me. I guess that's what happens when you're super passionate about chickens! LOL!

    Oh and she started laying a few weeks ago, too - bonus!

    I also brought home a pretty 2-mth old dark brahma pullet, met both her parents and was very impressed (grandpa was a BIS champion, to boot) and will get a couple more from him this spring.

    So exciting!

    Will post pics tomorrow [​IMG]

    It was too dark to take pics when I came home but I *promise* to post some tomorrow!

    The sultan is soooo pretty! Woo!

    And the dark brahma is show quality so she should turn out very pretty too when she's all feathered in!

    Congrats! Sultans are my favorite breed. My girl would rather spend an afternoon of me holding her than free-ranging any day. She's like a baby. I'm glad you were pushy, as I'd love to see pics! [​IMG] Both are awesome breeds.

    Awsome congrats on the new birds can't wait to see them. I always manage to come home with something unplanned when I go on a visit. I probably won't again since I am focusing on two breeds now. Congrats I bet they are both beautiful beautiful girls.

    Oh I never even thought I could have her, no way!

    But I guess the breeder felt he could trust her with me, it's him that offered her... I couldn't believe it!!

    Hope for some good light tomorrow so I can take pics...

    ps: are white sultans a popular breed?​

    As promised, here are some pics of the new girls!

    First, meet Paloma - 8 week old Dark Brahma girl whose feathers are just growing in!

    Here is miss Coco Chanel, my very sweet 6-mth old Sultan who is apparently already laying:

    I'll get better pics as the girls settle in, they've only been here since last night and are still under shock I think...

    Plus they were in very confined spaces, I think they will just blossom here - can't wait to see them grow into glossy beauties!

    Thanks for looking! [​IMG]
