The D’Anvers have been described as a little gentleman in an evening cloak… and yes, that’s just how they look. Short, big attitude, fire-cracker spirit and amazing to look at with their full breast and small head (in comparison) above their beard.
This design of the Barbu D’Anvers rooster is based on my lovely roo, Santa. He’s a beauty to look at and such a big personality. He swans around with his ladies in tow.
I’ve taken a page from the old Australian standards too in my design – ‘Bantams other than game’.
