Blue Japanese Bantam

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Ok has anyone ever came up with a Blue Japanese Bantam  chicken . If so how did you come up with this color Bantam , I was thinking on a project of blue japanese bantam which I was thinking on using a small orp hen with a blk jap. Roo  and cross breed them to come up with a small size blue jap. bantam , I know I would have to keep cross breeding the offspring for two different pairs and re breed the chicks to the fathers /mothers to sons and daugthers an vice a virser ..........


any input would be great this is going to take some time and a few yrs I guess but any input on anyone trying this new breed would be great..........

I thought I found some a few years ago. I brought them as checks, but when they got older every one turn out to be brearded. They was mix breeds sad I hope you have better luck than I did.

Thank for that infor. ,
But I'm  starting my project of Blue Japanese Bantam  Chickens this Month of Nov. 2010 .
I'm trying to breed a Black Jap. Male with a small Lt. Blue colored project chicken female  that I purchase this pass year , she is a little larger then the bantam size but not that much bigger-and  half or smaller the size of a stander size chicken , more like a game bird chicken size .   
From what I seen in pic.'s or have read on the chicken sites and hatchery ,It seems that there are only White Jap.= Black Jap.  = Black tail  White Jap.=  Buff Black Tail Jap.  ,On these Breeds . I think it would be cool if there would be more colors of the Japanese Bantams.

I think it'd be nice to have Japs in more colors, sounds like a fun project.

I think there are several varieties people are working on. I have barred japs and I am working on crele and bar-tailed white.  Several others are working I believe on Silver or Gold Laced, BB Red, Lemon Blue, Blue, Wheaton, and probably a few others.  It just takes several generation to get them where you want them.
