Thanks for the reply. I am interested in staying in touch. We are considered conservation breeders of a few heritage breeds. It goes with the nature of my day job: www.whagrinstitute.org
PM me if you would like to speak.
Seems that Big Medicine is right. I have also found that most breeders I have talked to, run their Laced birds together. This in my opinion is just muddling up the colors of these birds & I will not participate in doing so. I understand to make new colors you may have to mix a few, but that doesn't mean you should be selling them as pure colors of either. I have Gold Laced & hopefully next year some nice Buff Laced as well. I would love to get some Silver Laced but no one out there seems to be doing the right thing by them, so I will just keep wishing. I'd make some but I have limited space & a couple of projects going as it is. If you find some quality SL, pm me, I may be interested. I'd just have to find the room somehow. lol
