    I looked through the breeeders list and did not see any Sultans. Any ideas where else to look besides hatcheries?

    HA! Yeah, good luck actually FINDING someone in Europe who has them AND getting them to return an email! Been there, done that!

    d-bmodelmasters on EBay has Sultan eggs. I got 12 and 4 hatched out. They look great so far. One only has 4 toes and one had a bit of trouble hatching.

    I am going to work on Sultans over the next couple of years to get them to be as close to the Standard of Perfection as possible. Problem is, just getting different quality stock to get the project going. I think it was chickenzoo who has Sultans but they had to shut down for now due to an illness coming in from hatchery eggs. Her Sultans were standards. Absolutely gorgeous!

    I found a woman in Australia who has some black project Sultans. Still working on the 5th toe, but they are only F3, I think. But, just to get the eggs here would be such a PITA that it isn't worth it. I will just keep trying on getting something in the USA.
