I havent heard of any on my poultry travels, I always thought they had died out.

They are the autosexing version of the Campine though of which the silver version is the easiest to obtain so it may be worth looking for those rather than the Cambar, they are nice birds and reasonable layers

The autosexing registrar keeps a list of registered autosexing breeders her email is in the public domain so I think I am safe in reproducing it here: kathleen.arnold@tiscali.co.uk

I dare say they could be but to get them accepted as the Cambar they need to breed true without the crossing - so several generations would be needed for them to be pure and reliably autosexing, the first cross is literally the first step
