Does anyone have a photo of an Owl Beard? Does anyone know of any in the US?
Owl Beard? On a chicken?
How about an Ameraucana or an EE?
If you search Owlbeard chicken in Google images you see that they're usually a patterned (usually spangled) white bird with beard/muffs and a V comb. Very neat.
I don't think they're available in the US though. A lot of rare European breeds like Breda fowl and such just aren't, never have been.
From Wikipedia -
Also known as the Nederlandse Uilebaard. Oldest dutch breed around.
They are beautiful. You learn something new everyday on the forum. I love it.
As a kid I always called V comb roos, Devil chickens.....
Some European sits mention that they may have bred Owl Beard in crossing to bring back the Brabanter. They do look similiar with the forked comb, muffs and beards etc. I wish my Brabanters had the beautiful white coloring.
I have read that the Owl Beard is the closest type to the Brabanter.
