I thought about silkies but decided no . They have trouble with red combs on their birds and I could not get any info on leg color . I am trying a new angle I thought of . eb brown like Millie Fleur . Could not find out much about crele or candy corn Polish last fall . So I borrowed a Golden Sebright rooster to test this idea . I have a pair of chicks from him . Still will take a couple more generations to get a double barred male .

If I decide to bite the bullet and do this I'll keep you posted.  You were the pioneer in this coloration and I really admire what you've done.
