Any chance you can send some Ko Shamo eggs to the UK?
Hello,

I'm very sorry, all eggs are reserved for this year. Nothing I"ll sell here in my home country Belgium.
I'll also sent eggs to the UK this year, from several pairs. From the europe champion cuckoo and the blue ko's, not from the wheatens.

Yes but not the cocks obvisiouly, i have a pen of pullets consisting of silkies , cochin , ko shamo, oeg, leghorn, they all mix well but as with all breeds the cocks rarely get on unless brought up together.

That's an interesting question. The bird shown in my pic is a six-month old cockerel that stands 26" in a natural position. I have heard fairly credible stories of 32" birds. I have not seen a credible account of a 36" bird, although I have frequently heard that claim. It's like a fishing story: Once someone pulls out a tape measure, everyone gets real quiet.
