So the plan right now is to put my 5 CA Greys in with one of my black ameraucana males. Hatch out about 20 or so chicks and since this F1 will be sexlinks I'll know who's who. I can sell the girls as day old EE but will need to keep the males to see who has the nicest barring and disposition and conforms closest to the ameraucana body type. Then take one of those boys and put it in with my blue and black ameraucana hens. Hatch out as many as I can and cull out the nonbarred birds. These are my F2, right? They'll have a combination of Oo and OO. From here do I breed back or just select for egg color?

I get barred EE from my crele ameraucana project. These hens are split for partridge, but Ive had some nice barred males pop out. Best of luck in your adventure 🤟 Im sure I'll have some extra eggs to disperse in spring time if you dont mind the mixed gene pool, youll possible get partridge, barreds, creles, recessive whites, blacks, and i believe one of the hens is blue barred so you have the chance of blue varriations of everything listed above.
