I have those too, but I need chickens! (Eggs specifically, for more diversified gene pool.) The majority of the Icelandic chickens in the US descended from just 11 eggs!

What do you mean? Do you need photos of them or you need real chickens?

Nope. Just got Icelandic sheep for my farm here in NH, then an Icelandic sheepdog to work with them. Then I saw another breeder with Icelandic chickens and fell in love with them. They are really rare, and they are beautiful, very diverse in color and pattern.

I know a woman who used to keep chickens, original Icelandic kind. I think she still has them, but I think I'll rather send you a Flickr-mail or e-mail with this woman's contact info, for I don't feel comfortable posting it here in the forum :-)
