Those two above our both hens. I have since recieved two cocks. Same looking but larger.
One cock has a mirrored tail so I based on your description it is mixed?
I have seen Mardins and know they aren't that straight. Never seen Ankara so don't have anything to compare too.
Will I be able to tell once they get flying? I weighed a hen and she was a couple grams less than 8 ounces.

Corbin wrote:What does Taklabac mean?
Just a name. Hard to translate but almost like playing with tumbles.Corbin wrote:It looks like there are 6 kinds of Takla which are rather different? Why then are they lumped into one catergory? Just trying to get a better understanding.
They are all lumped in to the tumblers category because they all have a type of tumbling performance with in that breed.
However, you are very much right.
They are all very different from each other.Corbin wrote:Do Ankaras come back crested too?
Today, most birds are very difficult to categorize as one region or the other due to the compettion breedign.
It would be very difficult find a pure Ankara or Mardin.
Most of what is called Ankara are mixed birds that cary heavy Ankara qualities.
For this reason, you can actually see back crested Ankara birds.
Doesn't mean they are no god.
They could in fact be excellent birds.Corbin wrote:Here is a video of my two pairs getting readty to breed.
These birds came from a Henry in Scottsdale and he said they are from Seref in NY and may be mixed with birdlovfly (youtube name) in Minnesota.

Corbin wrote:He said Yozgat's are a Mardin/Ufra cross. You say Urfa is a long shot?
Corbin wrote:All I know is at Henry's Loft he has Mardin and some other takla which looks like the picture you have of Ufras expect the head is not a rounded. His birds came from Seref in NY and birdlovefly in MN. He said they are either pure Seref's or a mix of the two. Based on what I saw in his loft I would say they are a mix. So between them two lies the answer, unfortunately neither one returns my emails.

Thanks for all the help.
