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=?

Welsummer say swell summer and then remove the "s" from the front of swell

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
