Hi,

I've have some of these. I haven't bred them yet, though. Does anyone know anything about them?

A Bit on the stocky side for a BLC, but looks good! I take it from the lack of spurs that he's 1 yr. old give or take a little?

Hhhm... the 'Genetic stock' of the Blackcoal tribe of BLF has been found recurring with Blue Skin ~ not authentic. What a dissapointment.

Okay, a few of you were wondering about this. BLF have been broken into 6 genetic 'tribes', and 3 strains

 

There won't be many who will understand this, but...

- Gold Mantled (S/S; Ap+/ap)

- Gray Mantled (S/S; ap/ap)

 

{Bronze Tribe}

- Bronze (E/E; Ml/Ml; Co/Co; S/S; ap/ap or Ap+ap)

- Silver Bronze (E/E; Ml/Ml; Co/Co; S/S)

- Black (E/E; Ml/Ml)

 

{Cuckoo Tribe]

- Silver Cuckoo (E/E; Ml/Ml; Co/Co; S/S; B^sd/B^sd)

- Autumnal (E/E; Ml/Ml; Co/Co; S/S; B^sd/B^sd; ap/ap or Ap+/ap)

- Cuckoo (E/E; Ml/Ml; B^sd/B^sd)

 

{Crele Tribe}

- Silver Crele (S/S; B^sd/B^sd)

- Gold Mantled Cuckoo (S/S; Ap+/ap; B^sd/B^sd)

- Gray Mantled Cuckoo (S/S; ap/ap; B^sd/B^sd)

- Autumnal Partridge (Ml/Ml; S/S; ap/ap; B^sd/B^sd)

 

{Blackcoal Tribe}

- Blackcoal (Ml/Ml; S/S; ap/ap or Ap+/ap)

- Blacksnow (Ml/Ml; S/S)

- Quail (Ml/Ml; Co/Co; S/S; ap/ap or Ap+/ap)

BTW, another update, about 10 specimens representing the Backcoal tribe were found without Blue Skin ~ however, most of the tribe has been 'contaminated' with that gene, almost inarguably introduced from silkies.

I can't find many good photos of these birds anywhere. Can you post a few pics of yours?

Yep. A couple of these will be added to the wesite shortly.

BTW, they don't breed true to color. The Genetic Tribes are for the classification of certain colors. They have a certain small roster of genes (mostly incompletely dominant), and they produce many intermediates, which can theoretically be used to breed true-breeding stock. nobody has done this yet. All tat really matters is that Type and growth rate, and traits are consistent, so they are authentic.
