TOLLBUNT WYANDOTTES?! This recipe was a success, they are bred now, and Tollbunt Orpies as well
Okay, okay, stay calm, but it seems to continue, this new odd colour making. All this new stuff, that’s abosultely not wished in the fancy. First breed the old stuff correct (with ever changing standards), that’s difficult enough. Although some colours can’t excite certain breeders and what should you do if you’re the only one breeding that colour? Nothing to swap, no competitions, its stirring the same pot of soup. Agree? Yes? Everything seems to be twisted, revolved, spinning and swimming. The Wyandottes are perverted as well! My language skills lack in this. For anyone who is now in acute cryzis and sufferz from a high blood pressure, read more. Click on the chicken for downloading the PDF. For the recipe of Tollbunt, read here.

The above painting has been copied so awefully often... yes it is painted on a photo, in case you might wonder and I did that way back in 2008.
