Walt Boese strain and Tewart flock of Pure English  Light Sussex

My flock now resides with Farmer Karl in PA.   

  I know he will do well by them. Karl is a knowing poultry man.

RIP Hellbender, my friend. Good friend, good heart, gone too soon.

Is it possible to make a new total breed by in line breeding?? And how hard would it be to be officially recognized as a breed?? Thinking of an experiment/project.

No. Unless you had a cross of some sort that you would breed back to. Line breeding is not well suited for creating something new, rather it is better for making near copies of what you already have.

Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it.

I was thinking of crossing first one for beauty and the second for production..then line breed to continue the cross breed.
