    Sulmtalers have been a recognized breed for several hundred years, and about a hundred years ago there began a coordinated effort to breed them. In some parts of Europe they're bred on a large enough scale to support a small industry for gourmet chicken meat. I don't know how common the silver duckwing variety is. I found mine from a German breeder and have not seen them anywhere else.
