is this considered a rare breed?

Discussion in 'General breed discussions & FAQ' started by can you hear me now?, Jul 4, 2008.

  1. I have a silver laced phoenix rooster and 2 hens. Are they considered rare breeds or are they more common. It doesn't matter to me but was just a curiosity.

    All Phoenix varieties are considered old and rare by the SPPA's 2008 critical list...however, on the ALBC list, they are under the "study" list..."Study: Breeds that are of interest but either lack definition or lack genetic or historical documentation. "

    I'd love to see photos, too... [​IMG]

    Phoenix are beautiful! They definately aren't common, not many breeders really want to put the effort into maintaining the long, long tails. The longer the tail the more rare.
