I need some help for my memory. I recall reading long time ago(I think it may have been on this forum) about occurances of blue eggs in the past, suddenly out of nowwhere, it was either somewhere in Europe or Asia. I recall that the birds may have been punished with death for this. Anybody recall such thing ?(where and when it happened? And the source?).I can't explain why, but somehow I connect Iran with it(but I may be totally wrong).

It sounds typical for Iran, but I don't know.

Does anybody have an idea, how old is the laughing crow mutation (Ayam Ketawa)? Are we talking thousands of years, hundreds of years or just recent (like from last or next to last century?). Is Ayam Ketawa the only "breed" to do laughing crow?

Is any change in structure of the crowing organs involved?


To native English speakers: Is the first letter a in Brahma pronounced as a long vowel or short?

Thanks, but it did not help. It tells me nothing. It's English for English. I want to know if it is pronounced bra:ma or brama (in international transcription, where : means long sound). My native language does not have long vowels, so I cannot hear it normally and have to learn on word-by-word basis.

I can only speak to my experience, but generally here in the northern states (US) it is pronounced with a short a (by both "oldtimer" chicken and cattle folks) - elsewhere, in the southern states they often use the long a pronouncation. It seems as though its more a regional difference here in the US.

Cochin, on the other hand is mudered by newbies even though all "oldtimers" use the co:chin!
