    Years a go I had a hatchery naked neck rooster he was huge probably 12+ pounds looked like a cornish cross he was stout and very wide in the chest. I ended up selling him because he got aggressive and scarred my moms legs. He had the Prettiest coloring! A light blue with a bright bloody red band around his chest. I would like to recreate his coloring and body type in bantam size but can't figure out how. I'm thinking breeding blue naked neck bantam roosters to cornish bantam hens to get body type but how to get the band I'm lost..... And what name would be suitable for the color?[​IMG]
    This is an example of his coloring not body type.

    Closest color I can think of that looks similar to that is Lemon Blue... [​IMG] You can jump over to the Lemon Blue cochin project thread to get an idea of how to go about making these. Here's an example of a Lemon Blue OEGB to get an idea of what the variety looks like (google images photo, not my birdie)
