Pyncheon bantam

But before anyone thinks I'm horribly clever, I only know because I remembered the picture from feathersite! :oops:

I like to web-trawl when I've got some free-time looking at unusual colours, shapes and traits in different breeds. Which is the PC way of saying I'm a stickybeak who spends too much time on the web! :lol: :oops: :wink:

Now let me guess what this funny looking chook is compiled of ?

Seabright/campine/polish ?

I think it's supposed to be single but because the crest is there it can get pushed forward so it has to be small and still gets a bit squished forward... my Silkie Cross who has a single comb and a crest on a domey sort of skull has a similar looking comb.

Here's the feathersite I mentioned - look at the roo in the second picture

well i suppose you get the tassel and the white legs from the OEG and wack it into a belgium. then squeeze it out a bit so it looks the shape of a dorking....you might need a bantam dorking for this.

so i would cross a OEG (tassled)to a milflur d'anver (no feathers on feet?).
then the same d'anver to a bantam dorking.

then cross the above 2 progeny together and produce lots of chicks and go from there.

The Pyncheon pre dates the Seabright, it is a American true bantam and is very rare.

Chicken plus eleven herbs and spices - mostly secret.

Um. No. Importing birds isn't allowed because of the dangers of importing a health disaster that would cripple the bird industry here and damage the wild bird populations. There was talk of an importing syndicate which would share the cost of importing eggs and bring it down to a relatively more affordable couple thousand per dozen or so eggs but I don't think it's found the go-ahead from the government. Otherwise it's limited to large poultry concerns ie those developing hybrid layers or commercial meat bird.

That said the colour is mille fleur and for much less money you can get it pre-existing in the Belgian breeds.
