    In December we were in Italy, and I learned from a friend that the Italian National Championship show, the XXV Campionati Italiani di Avicoltura, was being held that weekend in Carrara, just 15 minutes north of where we were; so, of course, my wife and I spent all Saturday there and took a LOT of photos. I'm preparing to post a large album of them, but I didn't keep very good notes while shooting. I've Identified perhaps 60% of what I shot, but I could use help sorting out others.

    Thanks! As they get identified, I'll edit with the names. However, if you question or disagree with a listing, feel free to post.

    I tracked down this first one. Black Laced Gold Orpington (In Italian it's called a Fulva Orlata Nera Orpington)

    second set:

    Identified as a Buff Laced Cornish
    (323).jpg

    Identified as a Salmon Faverolle:
    (353).jpg

    Several people suggested that this is a Silver Ameraucana, but the show catalog doesn't list an Ameraucanas, and the don't seem to be available in Italy. The Araucana folk tell me this is an Araucana.

    Thanks, I thought so, but the single comb threw me. However, I get single combs in my wyandottes, it's a common variation from standard.

    I just spotted something in the photo and went back to check. The next photos I took after this were a Black Orpington, in cage 273. (in some photos I have the cage number, that makes identification much easier)

    I see that Orpington in the background in this photo, and I looked in the guide book. Cage 272 was a gold laced black Orpington, so that is what this one is. Very similar, they even have kind of a similar U shaped posture to the Wyandottes.
