    Hi! I have 1 blue light brown dutch rooster and 2 light brown dutch hens. I haven't started on my breeding project quite yet. I know that the blue light brown dutch don't breed true which is very sad:/. My rooster has won so many prizes.[​IMG] So anyway, I 'm going to breed the chickens listed above. Everyone has warned me that there's going to be problems with the blue gene in dutch. Any suggestions?[​IMG]

    The offspring should be blue light brown, black breasted red and splash/sports....

    Well that's why I'm breeding light brown with blue light brown. I will apparently get 50 light brown and 50 blue light brown.[​IMG] I really don't want any splash.
