    that is unusal that they are called SF hens even the boys- kind of like showgirls even the boys. I noticed that some have "head gear" and some don't and those that do it's not the same type of head gear. is there a standard for these, i know they are a new "old" breed.

    Quote:I have I male with "head gear" feathered head crest and 2 females with feathered head crest That is why they look different. The rest of my flock have no crest. I purchased these directly from Greenfire Farms.

    Oh, wow - lovely. Never heard of the breed, but it brings to mind 'rosemaling', that lovely colorful painting they do in Sweden. The colors are gorgeous. Where'd they get the hats? Sweden?
