50x50cm Sulmtaler cockerel having a quick snack….
The Sulmtaler originates from Austria – Tal means valley in Austrian. In 1900 they were classed as a breed in their own right and introduced to Britain, Germany and Holland. Both males and females have a feathered head crest. They aren’t aggressive, even when in a mixed flock. Although they are sometimes described as flighty, if handled often they become friendly, docile birds, which can become very tame indeed.
