Photo's to come this afternoon of my young growers.
Autosexing the females have a spot on the head at hatch, crested and very early maturing. Heat tolerant as well. L/F but light breed.

Quality is poor sorry about that, old camera and bright sunshine :(
Note the third pic you can see two of the girls have no crest. From what I can find out there are three strains, crested, non crested and a naked neck. I have crested and non crested. They are not very tame despite plenty of human contact, the coq is not bad at all but the girls are very shy, very difficult to catch them in the open for a snap, they dive off into undergrowth a lot.
As you can see they are a lovely colour, the pics do them no justice at all, you can see the coq's double comb, he really does look amazing.

Got them off a lovely lady who breeds rare breeds. Had some fantastic eggs off her this year including these gems. I believe she is the only UK breeder of them and has the only ones in the UK 'cept these four that I hatched off her.

I really like them, I think they will become a lot more popular as everyone comments on the hens as they are a lovely colour.

There are more breeders about than the last post, I know of at least 2 more.

Some of my hens go broody, which surprised me. I had 2 reared a chick between them last year, and have just fostered a load onto one who nested in the feeder which had a small lid left off in in the hut. Since there were about 40 eggs it was time to give her a break. She had no trouble getting in our out. I hope I can find someone with a long arm to get the eggs out! I also have 2 sitting in a corner of a large hut, with a bantam, turkey and muscovy, 2 chicks hatched so far. it has a posh big unused nest box

I can take a trio or 2 to the rare breed show at weald and downland near chichester tomorrow, if anyone is interested. Sorry about the short notice. Will also be at chertsey show near M25 next month.

The last comment I made was over a year ago, bound to be a few more breeders now, but they all came from the same lines.... Mine went to a very knowledgeable breeder who I think will do a great job on this breed.

What is their egg production like? And the temperament?

Thanks
