    The Quechua Thread

    Quechua - Pronounced Kichwa or Kek wah depending if your describing a northern or southern dialect.

    I personally recommend this thread to get a little history

    I really love the breeds that fall into this category of land fowl.

    My cockerel I ended up not keeping. Too much yellow in his legs.

    While Quechuas may look like ordinary EE to the untrained eye, the Quechua is a native bird to south and central america(in Nicaragua we have plenty of them) ... actually the first EEs in the USA were called the Northen Quechuas,

    I have some of these from Yashar and they are very interesting birds when you start reading about them, I was surprised on alot of the facts I have been discovering concerning them. I hope to have fertile eggs in the spring.
