how, many lines did you import ?
I imported birds from one large flock where the breeder had selected against the feather crests that are seen in some individuals of this breed. So, I found four crested birds from another flock that will be imported in October. As a practical matter, even within the same flock breeders will mate like-colored birds with each other --red to red, blue to blue, etc.-- and so you can have sub-lines within a large flock.
