It would be interesting to know what was used to re-create the sultan. They are such unique birds I would have thought it have been extremely difficult with the breeds we currently have in Aus. Does anyone have any knowledge of what breeds were used? Belgians perhaps?


There was an article in one issue of the "Australasion Poultry Magazine" I think it was, going back quite a way, and I believe from memory one breeder was re-creating tham using white Leghorn Bantams and Silkies. May have been something else too but can't remember for the comb.

Jesse what is the date of issue?

It's interesting that the British standards that I have, advises that only the large fowl is standardised, with no bantam in G.B. Yet in Oz the bantam seems to be the main player.

The bantam equivalent is the Burmah. So rare it is administered by the Rare Breeds Society in the UK. They hold the Standard.

The AP article is excellent. Shows what can be done over an extended time to re-create a breed. The breeder has thought the process thru and achieved a spectacular bird. To show what a difficult bird it is to breed to "perfection", the British Standard uses pics of birds from the 1920s!

Hi Sultans1 and welcome to BYP

I've not seen these before - love the look and profile. Please keep posting as you progress.
Can you give us some background of your birds?

These were acquired from Queensland and NSW breeders, They all go back to Melbourne lines, Warren Schutz who created them, And later Peter Jones who also done some work on them !

So good to see this thread continued, (and hopefully now without any of the nasty-pastie stuff from 2007/8 days).

Sultans1 they are lovely birds, you must be stoked with how well it is going. Will you have any eggs for sale this year - or is it too soon?

I just want to get some on the ground for myself first, But hopefully I can share some eggs with others that are interested in keeping them going. The more people working on them the better it is for the breed.
