Please help with breed pronounciation!

Discussion in 'General breed discussions & FAQ' started by ChickenCharmer, Jun 16, 2009.

  1. 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?
    Like-
    Wyandotte- WYE-an-dot
    Ameraucana- am-ER-uh-CAUN-uh

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

    And help with-
    Appenzeller
    Aseel
    D'Uccle
    Campine
    Crevecoeur
    Faverolle
    Fayoumi
    Kraienkoppe
    Maran
    Penedesenca
    Welsummer
    D'Anver

    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.[​IMG]

    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
