I have started on my new breed. I have a mature hen (7 months old currently) and the rooster is a teen (3 ish months) I am working on a new crested breed. I want it to be a silver spangled bird(But with more white than normal) . Crested, muffed, bearded, feathered legs/feet, vulture hocks, and a V comb. I have already written 1 page (Very detailed) of the standard I am breeding for. It is Identical to the standard the APA would write up. And I have drawn a picture of the goal end result. I am starting off the breeding with a Silver Spangled Appenzeller Spitzhauben Rooster, and a White Sultan Hen. And I will take the 1st generation of that and cross with either a silkie, polish, or cochin depending on what the bird comes out as. And Eventually I will have to breed the spitzhauben and sultan back in. I want the calm/ docile personality of the sultan, and the hardiness of the spitzhauben. I also want the bird to be readily broody.
I have never done cross breeds before, so any input will help
