    I love the rose combed rooster in the first picture, the dark face and bright white earlobes with the sweeping tail, nice bird.

    We got a rooster that looks similar to the one in the second pic when we crossed a black sumatra rooster with a couple brown easter egger hens. He had a darker face and shorter tail but the gamey body, comb, and color look similar.

    Nice pics

    Oh and just wondering, does that wheaton colored hen in the first pic have some sumatra in her? She has a cute face and interesting body.

    Thanks everyone.
    The wheaten hen is from (buff ameraucana x bb red phoenix) rooster X (my old fibro longtail rooster x game hen)hen. She doesnt have any Sumatra in her.

    I am going to put that dark faced rooster back over two of his aunts this spring, and I also have a younger rooster that is bred the same. They have longtail in them, about 3/4. the other 1/4 is denizli.

    Do you have denizli that are pure? If so you got any eggs to sell? I have a hen, would love to hatch a few more to get a roo or 2.........

    Pretty neat looking birds.........

    Ah, I see now. Her face looked just like some bantam sumatra hens I have seen, the body is slightly similar also to some that have hatched from our eggs.

    That rooster is amazing, I cant stop looking at his picture.
