Interested colleagues reported us last fall about particular chicken in a side valley of the South Tyrolean Sarn Valley. In a remote homestead on more than 1500 meters above sea level we came across a group of chickens that looked like the old Tyrolean chickens. According to the information received, these chickens have always been at the court. Whether there are actually remnants of the old Tyrolean, has yet to show.
We could exchange the group this spring against a group of New Tyrolean and take over. In the future breeding we will see if the offspring come out uniform or split in breeding. If the latter is the case, it will show a random crossing product of similar breeds. If the first case occurs, that would be a sensation. We are excited and hope that the still somewhat older animals provide still strong offspring!
