Last year I bought some rather expensive African Goose eggs from ebay.

One of the 4 hatched, but so far no one can actually identify what she is - other than she has definately some chinese goose, possibly some tolouse, maybe some pomeranian and a slim chance of a bit of african

Never mind I love her anyway, though I don't think I would have paid what I did for her before I met her

All the best
Sue

Were you looking for Utility Aylesbury or Exhibition?, Kim Brook in Devon does the Utility and UKGuineafowl specialise in the Exhibition, unfortunately so many people now breed the white commercial ducks or White Campbels as Aylesburys.

I mentioned something along those lines in my thread. I hatched chicken eggs from ebay and have a throwback in there from somewhere. It looks like a meat chicken to me, i'll have to take a photo and call on the chicken identification experts
