    Over here we call them Butterscotch...but they really should be called Saxony, I think the genitics is a little different on ours....

    Is the drake suppose to have a green bill in your standard? From what I can see I like the hen, do you have a picture of their bodies?

    I suspect this is a case of our respective Standards differing but their bills appear quite long by American standards.

    Yes i agree i think they do differ...
    But with the beak size i am unsure but i know the beak colour does change on different colours of calls over here ...

    Here is another picture :

    And this is not the best picture as their necks are looking up but i will show anyway :
