    Quote:What an interesting looking bird! I've never heard of it, and it looks to have characteristics I can't align with any of today's common breeds in one breed...so perhaps!

    The straight comb and winter-face are interesting, with the blue legs and saddle/hackle length...it looks like a straight combed silver Ameraucana, but the name is screaming European...I'd start looking at Dutch sites. They have the greatest diversity of birds- I'd look at Germany, too.

    Quote:the hen seem to be spangled yet the roos don't? if I were to speculate on their correct genetic background I would say they must be Autosomal Barred based on Birchen(Silver E^R)..

    their color should resemble Henks Bird

    Edit. well after seen the pics in the posted links, seems they are Spangled and not Autosomal Barred,BUT the drawing is not correct for the rooster, its not showing the chest spangling..

    I didn't follow up on it, but the place I saw them called that was a page that was translated by Google...I should have looked further [​IMG]

    I want them, too!! I think it wouldn't be hard to make...and there goes my project brain, off and running again!!!!

    Henk, when will you get together with Radirev and ship me some birds? I'm going to need to work on you boys!
