    I am really wanting to start to figure out if these would work in my program and I am also looking for some one that has them that could send me some pictures of their birds. i would love to find some that have very high saddle feather count. If you all know any information about them or who has them please let me know.

    There's no such thing to be honest, thats a fake name some American breeders have placed on plain ol phoenix to make them sell higher.
    The onag lines from the world's fair are gone, there were just a small hand full given to us to start with so long ago, and all male, they are so depleted that any trace of "onagadori" is so miniscule any more that it's not even worth mentioning.
    Basically, these are just VERY good quality European phoenix birds. David Rogers, Cy Hyde, Toni-Marie Astin are the premier breeders of these in this country.
    All mine came from Toni-Maries lines and are near as perfect as can be.
    Basically they are refered to as non molting lines, being that they will go at minimu 2 years up to 5 years between molts, but still just phoenix.

    There is another forum specifically for these birds, if interested. will not list it here though for BYC sake.
