Creating a Cuckoo Self Blue Cochin Bantam.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I saw a picture and description on the web of a pair of Cuckoo Self Blue Cochin Bantams. I contacted the person and learned he lived in Spain. I was told he was unaware of any of these birds in the U.S. It is my understanding that this variety is a cross between a Buff Barred and a Self Blue Cochin bantam. Since I have both of these varietie's, I would like to try this project. Although I have raised poultry all my life, I have never delved into poultry genetics, so I do not know where to begin. Does anybody have any suggestions or know anything about this color variety? Thanks.

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! I'm afraid colour genetics are not my thing but you might like to drop by the genetics section. Here is the link ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/16188/exhibition-genetics-amp-breeding-to-the-standard-of-perfection
I hope some members there will have the answers for you.

Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif
