German Sparkly Collection (Coming Spring 2021!)
$39.99 – $199.99
***This variety is currently available for 2021 pre-orders***
The new German Sparkly Collection is unlike anything we have ever seen. We thank William Foster at K.Dale Coturnix for making this collection available through Southwest Gamebirds and for his help with our breeding program which has now achieved jumbo weights in over 30 varieties from this collection. We have separated each variety for study, and we are working to isolate colors and plumage patterns that will breed true in collaboration with an international network of breeders. Each variety will be released separately and the entire collection in its original form will be released in Spring of 2021. It is now available for pre-order, and a small number of eggs are also currently included in the Southwest Gamebirds Hatchery's Choice - Rare Mix if you would like a sample of what is to come. If you're looking for something striking to add to your flock, the German Sparkly Collection is a winner on all fronts for meat, eggs, and aesthetics.
The Sparkly gene appears to amplify almost any color or plumage pattern without decreasing bird size. This is a unique color collection not only for its beauty and rarity, but also due to its jumbo size. The gene has a striking effect on varieties like Italian, Pearl Fee, Falb Fee, and even wild type. Pearl Fee and Italian become speckled on the entire bird, Falb Fee males exhibit grey, brown, or peach tones through the ventral plumage, which is normally fully diluted, and wild type males exhibit a deep brown diamond pattern on the ventral plumage, which is normally solid copper. The more we study the sparkly gene, the more it impresses us.
What to expect: Over 30 varieties, including several never seen before in the US. These birds will also commonly achieve jumbo weights. Our hope is that each variety will have true jumbo status by our spring release.
