My blue project birds are growing up. I have about 7 pullets and most are single laced with a couple showing blurry double lacing. Type is all over the place. I used rocks to get the blue gene and some look more like rocks and some more like Barnies in type.
Here are a couple pictures of the older pullets and a cockerel.
Pullet 1 has the nicest Barnie type but I think she is Ml/ml. Is there a Columbian gene in here, the single lacing would say yes. The columbian gene does not show up with the E/E rocks I bred to so I had no way of knowing.
Pullet 2 (below) has a few double laced feathers, but also mostly looks single laced, she has a darker hackle and poor type. She may fill out more in the next few months. She has a flat back and looks more rock like.
Here is my oldest blue laced cockerel. He is very odd type not Barnie at all with a long flat back. He looks to me like a composite chicken where someone pulled a head off one bird, body off another and tail off a third and taped them together. Its not the just the picture, that is how he really looks. His two brothers were even worse, no tails to speak of and they are gone. His color is nicest of all the oldest cockerels. I have about 8 younger cockerels I am hoping will be much better. I used three different roosters in the blue breeding this year. This one cam from a Johan Barnevelder rooster and bluerock x barnie F1 pullet. His daddy was on the reddish side in hackle and that shows up in this boy.
