    Shows have silky feathers,and 5 toes, very similar to a cemani x turken. This cross is bigger too

    As soon as I posted I saw those pictures with the naked neck the black one. I do like the way that front on shot shows that little head puff and that Naked Neck it looks very upper class :D

    That should be a great cross--increasing both size and egg production.

    I like the way they look too.

    I have a Svart Hona rooster for sale around a year old and from Ewe Crazy Farm. I have offspring from him that I'm keeping and also bought a rooster from Greenfire farm line, so no longer need him. PM me if interested.

    Thanks

    The svart rooster came over night in the mail. Box made him wild, he's settling down with the help of my 4 hens. Hope to have lots of black babies in the spring

    I second that. Beautiful birds! Congrats to all who have them and hope you will keep us, who wish to share our lives with them, in mind when you have eggs available!
