The voorburg croppers look nice.

Lovely very tame birds ,especialy the hens .good parents .quite alot of mismarks though .have grease quills so blacks n reds have very good sheen. Not best of flyers but very active strutting round.

Was they flying birds mate, or kept in and bred for shows?[/quote

When i started everything flew out . As i got more serious best n stock had aviaries. Had german n dutch imports spent too much to lose them! done lots of shows all over and did well with them.

Must admit i cant abide all that show malarky with birds any more than with dogs......just dont sit right with me but each to their own im sure they are happy healthy animals in their own way.
