Hi from Australia, we have now imported DB's into Australia and this will be the first year for exhibition. My question is in regards to breeding. I believe there is pullet breeding stock and cockerel breeding stock and I need to know how to identify them. Is there another breed of poultry I can follow the same colour genetics with, as here in Australia we have very little information about DB's at all. I have attached a photo of my young boy and would like to know if he is a pullet or cockerel breeder and why he would be either, his chest is pure black.
I do hope this all makes sense
