Thanks Ruff. I actually bought them as Dutch last year but I was told by someone else that they aren't Dutch.

They do look similar to mine so I would say there is at least a bit of Dutch in mine even if they aren't pure. Where do you get all these Wernlas photos from? I've been on their site and couldn't find any.

on the wernlas site you cannot even email them....you can ring them.

watchout they don't like you opening cage doors to photograph the birds but if it is a cold miserable day and no one is there you can get away with it till the boy who drives the tractor gets you :lol:
