Just spotted this when trawling the net. Can someone please enlighten me as to the breed & colour, and also whether the breed & colour is available in Australia?

Not sure what that is Winglet. Looks kind of like a campine but the plumage is wrong. Someone else can enlighten us!

In the meantime, here are some more pics from the National held in the West Midlands on 16 November.

Thanks... you enabler, you ! :thumbs:

LOVE the chamois Polish !

I can't see the results on the UK National Poultry Show site yet... if someone knows where else the results might be, we could track down what it is that way.

Definitely looks campineish (ha!....i can invent my own words), could it be a not quite perfect chamois campine maybe? I read hear that someone has developed them (can't remember if it was blackdotte or ayam goreng....or someone else) so it is possible but i don't know what they look like. Everything about her screams campine except for the yellow in the beak and hard to see the leg colour but maybe still in development. I am just a beginner having a stab so others may not agree but i think everyone would agree she is very pretty.

She looks very much like a Friesian....as to the colour, probably Chamois Pencilled. And no, unfortunately there are none of these in Australia. They are very pretty, aren't they.

I think she is a friesian, the colouring looks wrong for a brakel. The poultry club of GB is being exceptionally rubbish at uploading the results. I will try to find a link somewhere.

Probably right LP. Looks like a dark leg. Whatever they are they are certainly much prettier than the creatures on either side of them!

I've tried to find a PCGB link but there isn't one yet, although some individual breed clubs have links to winners in their breeds, but several are only available to members. I had another look at the bird as several of you have mentioned chamois campine. If she is one, then she is very rare indeed in the UK as its not a recognised colour here, so its a good chance for me to see one - I wasn't able to go to the National.

The Japs are nice but that Polish is gorgeous & the behaviour of climbing is typical of what my girl would do.
