    it has such a LOOONG neck, my lavenders (american buffs with lavender coloring) have short thick necks. I have one Embden and her neck is slimmer and longer than the americans.

    Does it have blue eyes? How much does it weigh?

    i really don't know anything about them other then thats one of the birds in the pic. they used to live at a little community farm and they would chase after any child who got too close so some of the farmers ate them.
