    Shamo from across the pond are exceptional fowl! Especially those of Julia Keeling's stock from the Isle of Man.

    the reason you probably haven't heard of Dominique and delawares are probably because they were developed in the US.. No other countrys may have them (not saying that they don't.. Just saying they MAY not)

    As for my favorite i love the game breeds.. All of them.

    Ameraucanas and EEs are favorites of mine. But I really do love lots of different breeds.

    Here is a pic of a 7 week old Ameraucana pullet. "Bonnie"
