    I've never heard of the breed. Are you sure zitterhall wasn't just the breeder of the birds?

    No they are a breed, I have some, I can find VERY little info on them. The only info I can find on them is------ Zitterhall-Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. They are a German breed, with a "trembling neck". I only know of 2 colors, yellow and black, I have both. I have some that I would like to sell, I have too many.

    Zitterhalls rule. I have seen one or two shown at the Louisville Young bird Show in Oct. in years past. But I dont think I have seen any other colors.
