I gave the little boy across the road a couple of chooks for the coop that his Dad's just built for him, and he's truly delighted to have his very own little flock.

He's now studied my book about breeds of poultry and decided that he wants a Chanticleer hen to add to his coop. Are there any in Australia?

If he's interested in rarer breeds show him http://www.rbta.org/PoultryList.htm the list is a few years old but still would be fairly accurate in what breeds and colours are in numbers.

Thanks blackdotte. I thought that there'd be none here.

Thanks also RyaRod. Good idea. I've had a look at the site and have printed the list out for him. It's a pity that the site hasn't been kept updated. It seems to have stopped around 2008. It'd probably be a difficult task to keep something like that updated.

If you wanted to start the young bloke off on a good project have him make them . All" make up" breeds are available here ( Leghorn , IG , white RI and Wyandotte )and it would not be too difficult to find out how the originals were made . :wink:

I'll certainly suggest that to him Martin. What a buzz he'd get out of working towards that.

However, he's only 8 years old with a very small yard for his coop and run, so I suspect that if I plant the seed of thought into his young mind it would be something that he could aspire to later in life. I know for sure that he'd never forget about the possibility of creating his very own Chanticleer.

Will let you know what he says when I tell him.

Cheers,
Helen(chook)

The other option is that he gets a breed that is similar in appearance - if he likes the partidge variety then Partridge Wyandottes may make him just as happy.
