    Ahhh, the ever popular Denizli's. Here's a link for anyone interested - http://feathersite.com/Poultry/CGD/Denizli/BRKDenizli.html

    for anyone wondering, yes they are in North America. Not a popular breed, but they can be found from time to time, specifically sold as eggs.


    ETA: Notice that "The ever popular Denizli's." yet "Not a popular breed." I don't plan on changing it though, makes sense to me. Popular that a lot of people know, and talk about them. But not a popular breed to own.

    There are several other long crower breeds, too. None are common; denizli are probably the most common in the US

    The longest I've heard are from the Kosova longrower, sadly not in the US (I'd be one of the first to breed them if they were [​IMG]) But yes, there are indeed Denizli breeders here. [​IMG]

    I believe Sandhill also sells Tomaru longrowers. Hardly a "long" crow, but still impressive compared to the average rooster.

    That was a long crow! I wish my rooster could crow like that, maybe it would drown out the neighbors's barking dogs.

    I busted out laughing toward the end as he was running out of breath. [​IMG] Those poor hens, having to listen to him all the time! I can only imagine what he sounded like when he was learning to crow.

    Sorry, but I could never put up with that noise. I'd plug him with a .22 by crow #3. [​IMG]

    Thanks for sharing! I've heard of long crowing breeds and always wondered what one sounded like. [​IMG]
