What's your marches like mate? Can they tackle? How far they range? I kept horseman for while and couple jienese, nice birds, thinking about getting some decent ranging horseman again or pair of moroncellos for garden. Think gnippers are horseman as well. Get some pics up mate

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.

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.
