Me neither - maybe we shoud have a special post for rare breeds, Bob will be able to expain all the ins and outs of some of his breeds for a start - there are more and more people keeping rare breeds now - anyone heard of those long crowers - gobsmackingly long crow they have too :smt009: :smt009: :smt020 and a good looking bird as well - but I know nothing about them - We ought to support the rare breeds as well - before they become extinct breeds :smt023

Yes i agree the rare breeds are becoming more popular i would like to think
that my showing in the Yorkshire region has helped (in a small way).
A Show put large rares on their schedule at my request after i promised to fill a class ( 3 no ) 6 birds were entered
they were well chuffed . Another split male /female classes at my request which again did very well .
