Hi Eggy

They will be on show at this years Mediterranean at Bendigo. At this event they will be almost full grown as at Sydney they could not be assessed because of their age. From what I saw at Sydney, none of the other breeders had mastered developing willow legs. There were two that were some kind of shade of dark green not willow.

After the developing pair mature, from this season's stock there will be some available but only because I'm now satisfied they breed true for all characteristics and there is little to do for enthusiastic breeders but upsize perhaps and multiply.

After the Mediterranean they will not be shown again for four years.

Thrilled to say I managed to acquire a copy of Fancy Fowl January 1997 regarding the Yorkshire Hornets as well as November 1997.

Just a few years later
