From the very first time I seen the Cream Brabanter I knew I had to have some to have on my farm. So beautiful and well tempered. I have worked with this breed for many years now and am improving on their characteristics to fit the Dutch standard. There are many currently working on the breed and many newbies. My first rooster's name is Rusty and he carries the stag horn gene which is an ancient comb for the Brabanter. Those carrying that gene are very rare. I have a hen named Dorothy who has the V shaped crest that fit more to what the American breeders want. Since my first two I have acquired several more all with proper V shape combs. Since I first started out with Brabanters, I have acquired 3 separate flocks. Through proper pairing and culling I have finally hatched several with proper comb, correct spangle shape, leg color , 3 part beard, eye color, and stance. I will continue to work with this wonderful breed and help others in our quest to form a APA standard for them in America.
