So what if a person began breeding for the meatier heavier body type and showed the larger size. HOw big a no no is that when showing? Specificly with this breed.

The only major difference (besides weight, which I've also wondered about) I see right off the bat is the angle of tail set.

To me it does make most sense to use the original standard written by the creator of the breed. Of course this would mean using a different standard for Partridge Chantecler (Albertans), which I'd be completely OK with.

So it might be a good idea to add leghorn to the Partridge (assuming we're breeding them as Chantecler not Albertan)? This wasn't in the original recipe was it? It would tighten up the feathers and couldn't hurt egg production. It would also bring up the tail angle which could be seen as a good thing if one were to breed to the old standard.

Tara do you by any chance have a standard by Dr. Wilkinson for his breed?

Agreed, the addition of Leghorn would bring the weights down.

And AGREED! The Albertan is a totally different breed from the Chanticler. They had nothing to do with each other.

So where do our partridge Chanteclers come from then? Cause I'd say based on the Albertan standard mine look alot more like Albertans than Chanteclers.

Interesting. So there is a strain of Partridge that I would call an actual Chantecler. Any idea how widespread it is?

BLACK CHANTS
As mentioned above, Mr. Auclair had been working to improve the Partridge by instilling White. From this cross came Black sports. With a good green sheen, but he repeatedly goes back to the necessity of a “yellow leg” being a requirement of the Chantecler (and here we all think the cushion comb is important…ha!). In ten years, André feels he has perfected the Black Chantecler. He has instilled 25% Black Wyandotte, 25% Black Leghorn, and 50% of the White x Partridge crossed Chanteclers and he used these intermediate Black hens that were produced, to supply his family with eggs…already willing and able to supply Canadians with eggs, how very Chantecler is that!! After breeding up to 7/8 Chantecler, he felt they were doing the breed enough justice to call them Chanteclers. He had issues with the two year old cocks developing white at the tail break, sometimes an individual would get a bit of red feather in the neck, but now colour, shape, productivity, and the Black Chantecler has been formed to breed pure. He has eliminated the Plymouth Rock; Sumatra/Java “green” shank colour, so his Blacks have yellow legs…can you just envision how beau these birds must be!! Vivid green sheen black, yellow legged, and red cushion comb and small round wattles…trés magnificent!

Bruce Bickle exhibted one of these at the National, really neat. She did come from a partridge/white cross too so thats really cool.

Hi guys...

I stumbled on this treat...I am breeding Chantecler and it is the first time EVER I heard that André Auclair bred black.....I will look further to this.

I really like to see a pix of that. I will do some researches.

thank you.
