Creating a new breed - Page 14

post #131 of 139

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

Sultan, Appenzeller, Serama, Muscovies, Mallard, Coturnix, White Ringneck Psnt, Standard Ringneck Psnt, Red golden Psnt, Abyssinian Blue Ringneck Psnt, Roller Pigeons, WOE Tumbler Pigeons, Russian Tumbler Pigeons, Ringneck Doves, Archangel Pigeons,  German Owl Pigeon, Komorner Tumbler Pigeons, Brunner Pouter Pigeons, Budgies, Button quail, Cockatiels, Zebra Finches, a dachshund, bengal cats,...

I can appreciate the statements from you folks who want to put your efforts into maintaining and improving existing breeds.  Yes, that is necessary.  But, there's room in the hobby of keeping poultry for you, and for those of us who like to play around with the genetic pool.  That's where the land race breeds came from.  So, while I respect your opinions, please don't rain on the parade of those of us who are enjoying the genetic opportunities.  I have one foot in each camp.  Currently working on a barn yard mix, focused on green/blue egg laying black sex linked,  birds with pea/rose/or walnut comb.   (and perhaps ending up with an autosexing green/blue egg layer with a small comb)  Every now and then... I'll jump into the other camp to breed some nice birds to keep my genetic pool going in the direction I'm hoping for it to go.  IMO, it's the barnyard mixes who will prove to be the superior bird for the back yard flockster, b/c they have been selectively bred to thrive in exactly those conditions.

Ephesians 2:10  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

I have some experience with crosses involving those two breeds. If you can give more detail as to what variety Wyandotte, and refrain from using the word roo , I can give you some idea as what to expect.

here is a project that has been done before but crossing a gray american gamefowl hen with a reynolds asil cock to get roundhead american games

 

it would involve keeping the best stag and breeding back to his mother and then keeping the best stag from 2018 to breed back to his mother
