    You should find the thread...Hello! and welcome to the OEGB thread. Lots of ppl on there that might be able to help. I started off with the bbr's and changed over to crele's. Its a popular color and should be easy to fine some. Good luck and post some pics.[​IMG]

    What makes you think they are brother & sister?
    Even if they are you're better off breeding from them than outcrossing to a female from another strain. Sometimes those blind outcrosses yield wonderful results. Usually they don't.

    OEG BBRed males can be Partridge or Wheaten bred, which do you want? What do the pullets look like?
