Difficult,when you don't know the English names on some species,but ok,the internet provides you with all of the information,and the animals are more known as i thought.
But in this case,the golden phasant for me.
A wonderfull and colourfull bird!

I have voted for the Guinea Fowl. First, I like them when they are roaming around in our farm in the Philippines. And it's very difficult to differentiate between the cock and the hen. I've only noticed that they have a different sounds to compare between them and for me they are simply beautiful species and they can chased away the much bigger turkeys. :biggrin:

The thing I am puzzled about these birds is how they manage to multiply in the wilderness since they are not incubating their own eggs? We normally use two different hens to hatch their eggs as they have a longer incubation period than the normal chicken.

They do incubate their own eggs normally.
When the breeding season is there,they will be out of the group,and live in pairs then for a while.
But they can have huge litters,up to 30 sometimes.
But are you searching for a model of one of the many sub-species of this fowl then?
Here it is...

Seriously, they don't hatch their own eggs there. That's we have to get their eggs and exchange with chicken eggs. And the chicken will do the hatching for them. And like the chicken, they like to perch on the higher tree branches during the night time.

I should have voted for the Argus. I voted for the Guineafowl as well, not being aware it had got so many votes before.:frown:

Ok Ron,they do it there,i understand.
But in nature this can't happen of course.
When i kept some different species of tropical birds in the past,i had a breed of birds that would even breed out chicken eggs,haha.
A:eek: chicken egg would be as big as the bird itself...
But these very easy going birds cam ein handy when the other birds failed in breeding their own eggs,like the chickens do for the Guinea fowl.

There is a nice model of a gold phasant by the way,although old and composition...

Wonderful Kiki , but most of your collections , though they look nice , their scale is a problem - many Japanese stuffs are quite smaller . I prefer the scale s of S , S and P . That would be very good for a grand display . :wink:

Your wide range of species is awesome though .:smile:

Ah ah Doc, thank you for your kind words :smile:.

I also love your german stuff. :cool:

But, though they look nice, their scale is a problem. many German stuffs are quite smaller or bigger. :wink: Schleich is still unable to produce critters at the same scale. Greater kudu so greater that it is bigger than elephant, llama who can easily look in the eyes of the Asiatic elephant cow, Gorilla as huge as a pelican, pigmy... even not pigmy but lilliput hippos as big as a chimp... :rolleyes:

Scale, I mean SCALES is still a big problem now or maybe it's not a problem indeed. I know the Kitan club you bought are small but my experience is that some japanese animals fits perfectly with some Schleich or Papo, sometimes better than other Schleich or Papo... It's the same with small critters from Playvisions...

Scales was a problem for me but not now: different scales ? Different shelves:smile:.

I voted for the golden phasant too Doc.
But i must agree with Kiki abou those scales...
I do display my critters on different scales with the different scales together,so 1:32,1:25 and 1:20.
Sometimes there are some modesl out of these ranges,or don't have the same scale as their other models from the same makes,so then i do put them to another scale,so they fit better.

Kiki , the 3 - S , S and P are of more or less matching in the scales . After I bought this kitan club figurines with few Kaiyodo figurines , I felt that the Japanese stuffs are extremely smaller though they have an extraordinary sculpt and finish . May be as u said , a different shelf for different scales , but the space............:confused:

Doc, the S,P&S are not in scale, often less than more... Take a look at your display... They are not. Schleich hyena is too small for the jackal, but too big for the hippos... And I even don't speak about the koala :eek:.

But they are beautiful, pure gems on your shelves... :cool:. And they are sharing soul with you:smile:.

Scale is a problem for Danny and Phil because they need some accuracy and realism in their goal.:cool:

I already said that in another thread but for me, the most important thing when choosing a critter is really listening to my heart. Everything else is meaningless... Doc, I know you perfectly understand me :smile:.

Before joining LG, I never thought about mixing vintage and modern, never. Then I began posting my collection species by species for the first time. I made herd pics because you guys enjoyed it and Ana encouraged me... I discover then that moderns and vintages critters perfectly fits in family portraits.:cool:
It was a problem for me, but not now.:wink:

Scale is not a problem Doc, enjoy you SPS and your Japanese for what they are : everydays joy.

Finding place and display is a problem in a collector house... But there is always enough place in our soul...:smile:

I agree,take every model for what it is,new or old,little or big.
Space is always a problem of course...
As long as i have the space around here,more kabinets or vitrines will come to this house.
Later on there will be a room for all of my collections,including displays i guess...:biggrin:
