I got a pair of unknown breed blue crele-esce chickens at the local auction about 2 months ago. The hen has been laying for a few weeks now, and I would like to improve on the color.
The rooster has 5 toes, both have a small amount of feathering on legs, and they both have a little white in the earlobes. The hen lays a light brown/tan colored egg.
I currently have:
1 Barred Cochin (broody with chicks)
1 Partridge Cochin
1 Splash Jesry Giant
2 Black Jersey Giants(not yet laying)
1 Lemon Blue mix (has 5 toes)
I would like for them to have 5 toes, yellow feet, light leg feathering (like marans), and to have medium-large single combs, or possibly large rose combs. Not to peticular on egg color right now, but I dont have a any speckled egg layers.
I was thinking barred and BBR would be the best colors to add?? I was thinking of getting some welsummers or light brown leghorns? Those are the only 2 LF breeds I could think of that are BBR.
