    Hi everyone,

    Since I am from a region far away from you guys, I would like to show you a special Kurdish breed which is called mixed Shami/Kurdish breed. It is very tolerant, beautiful, strong and brave fighter.

    Here is a video of an example. Although I don't have that breed (I have typical Kurdish breed), but I just wanted to share it with you.

    You can also post pics of your roosters if you like.

    I love the tail. I have two young Phoenix/white crested black Polish cockerels that I'm hoping will grow such a tail.

    Beautiful bird.

    I will as soon as I can. So far they are a disappointment. The hen has a nice tail. Even the Polish rooster has a nice full and long tail. The cockerel's tails are thin and wispy. Maybe as they get older.

    Thank you dear, yes he is very cute :)

    Yes, here are some photos of local hens and roosters including my pullets (at that time they were only 3 months old) now the white one is broody sitting on 7 eggs (day 12) :)

    What a beautiful rooster! Thanks for sharing. It's neat to see breeds that are new to me.

    You say you have "typical Kurdish breed". Do you have hens and a rooster? What do they look like?

    Here are my roosters.

    Here on BYC and in the UK there seems to be a craze for Silkies. I really don't understand it. I would rather have chickens like those in your pictures.
