I have been reading back through this thread...Trying to gleen some knowledge so I can do this breed some justice.
However, I found this and had to reply since I have these in my flock...quite by accident! I have two of these from Simone- She had paired a Jean Wade BCM with a GFF blue isbar. The two hens that resulted are in the front of my pic here. They are blue. We named them "The twins" I hatched 6/6 eggs from a dark BCM egg. The resulting Roosters were stunning as well but a bit aggressive so...two went into the stew pot, one got beat up pretty hard and did not recover and the last one which was my favorite ever....distracted a neighbor dog from the flock and lost his life. The dog came back twice for him...Willy was a Good good beautiful boy! I re-ordered from her and I have six more chicks due to hatch today...

I also have some Hona/Isbar crosses I hatched for fun. They are extremely strong & cute! LOL
However, now I am actually trying to set up some for breeding for my pure isbars so, I will have to clear my camera for them & get some help from you all!
