    Looks like they are sportin' bad Mohawks and scruffy beards, lol. I need to look this breed up, see what the adults look like.

    They're unique. Their defining characteristics are their beards and their "mohawks" along with spangled feathers. I think they're beautiful. These are Cream Brabanters, by the way - for when you look them up.

    Me too, critters. These are rare chickens, so far, but getting more notice. I think people either think they're beautiful or ugly [​IMG]...

    I think they are beautiful, even with the silly hair-doo and scruffy beard, lol. Love the spangles feathers. I like birds that are different and stand out. Glad you chose to work with a rare breed, that in itself is just awesome [​IMG]

    Thanks, Peeps. I'm going to hatch some, but I'm not going to set myself up as a seller. I'll keep a small flock of them and work toward breeding them up to standard, which is becoming more clear in the U.S. It will be an interesting project/hobby - long term of course. I'll keep the ones who get closer to standard, and find happy homes for the rest.. shouldn't be hard. (Famous last words :)!)..and probably sell eggs from the "keepers". I'm stoked.
