This is sort of embarrassing, but everything I know about chicken breeds comes from book knowledge, and I don't know how to pronounce the breeds! Can you help me a bit?
Wyandotte- WYE-an-dot
Ameraucana- am-ER-uh-CAUN-uh

And is it CO-shin, or CO-chin, or what?

And help with-
Norwegian Jaerhone

I apologize for my stupididy; does anyone have this problem?
And is it CO-shin, or CO-chin, or what?- CO-chin

And help with-
Appenzeller- AP-an-zeler
D'Uccle -Doo-clay
Campine- Camp een
Crevecoeur- Creevacore
Faverolle- faverole

sorry- gotta rush- I hear cheeps coming from the incubator!
I'll take my best guesses for you.

1. Wyandotte=Why-n-dote (?)
2. Cochin=Co-chin
3. Appenzeller=Ap-en-zeller
4. Aseel=?
5. D'Uccle=Doo-clay (it's French)
6. Campine=Camp-ine
7. Crevecoeur=?
8. Faverolle=Fav-er-ol
9. Fayoumi=Fay-oom-ee
10. Kraienkoppe=?
11. Maran=Mar-in (?)
12. Penedesenca=?
13. Welsummer=Well-sum-er (?)
14. D'Anver=?
15. Catalana=?
16. Norwegian Jaerhone=?

Lol, I forgot the second one. I think you have it right though.

Kraienkoppe I'm not even gonna try that one, LOL! I think it's "cry and cope" but not sure
Marans Muh ran
Penedesenca Penne (like the pasta) Des (like desk - the k) N kuh
Welsummer say swell summer and then remove the "s" from the front of swell
D'Anver Dan and the last part of Denver =Dan ver
Catalana Cat uh la nuh
Norwegian Jaerhone K, again, not gonna try it, LOL! I could give you Norwegian, but I bet that's not what you need.
I have a problem with some of them, it took me forever to say Penedesenca, because I kept saying it too fast and it came out pendesenca.

Wow! I was so far off on my mental pronounciation it ain't even funny. Glad I never talked about them to anyone.

I got another one for y'all. It may just be local hillbilly slang around here but when anyone mentions Australorps they say it like austra lop. The r is not pronounced. Is the r really silent or are all us hillbillies around here saying it wrong?
I am still unclear about Marans

I pronounced it Mu-rance for a long time with the accent on second syllable.

I have been told more than once it is more like Mare (like the horse) unz, accent on Mare. Mare-unz. I would like to know
Wyandotte- WYE-an-dot yes
Ameraucana- am-ER-uh-CAUN-uh close enough

And is it CO-shin, or CO-chin, or what? co-chin

And help with-
Appenzeller ap-in-zell-er
Aseel uh-seal
D'Uccle duck-el or du-clay (although I've heard more pronunciations for this breed than there are letters in the word
Campine cam-peen
Crevecoeur crev-o-cour
Faverolle fav-e-roll
Fayoumi fay-ou--me
Kraienkoppe cray-in-cop
Maran (marans, not maran) ma-rans
Penedesenca pen-e-den-ska
Welsummer wel-sum-mer
D'Anver (always has an s at end, d'anvers, not d'anver) dan-vers
Catalana cat-uh-lan-uh
Norwegian Jaerhone Nor-wei-jan yar-hun (not absolutely sure on this one)
