    So my brother and I are working on a Buff Old English project, our main problem is there is very few Buff Breeders. We have found a few black tail breeders, so i was wondering how hard would it be to breed out the black tail?

    Quote:Ideal hatchery has buff OEGB. Buy some from them then cross them to good black tailed red to improve type etc.
