I'm going to start a meat breed project using Showgirl Silkies, Turkens, and Cornish X. It's mostly for fun, I want to start with something simple to learn about genetics. I'll make a separate thread when I start but here's what I want it to look like:

I'm not sure how to get the tail-less look, maybe Araucana? What other breeds don't have tails? I'm also going to do a more ornamental project but I haven't decided yet. I've got some Rosecomb Bantam/OEGB eggs in the incubator so I'll update when they hatch.

So my girls are starting to lay and I'm hoping to start a breeding project to learn more about genetics. Here's what I have to work with:
Easter Egger
Sapphire Olive Egger (Hens only)
Amberlink (Hens only)
Prairie Bluebell Egger (Hens only)
Australorp
Maran
Orpington
Wyandotte
Brahma (Hens Only)
Dominique (Hens Only)
Plymouth Rock
Jackie Red Ranger
Cornish Rock
Japanese Bantam (Roosters Only)
Pekin/Cochin Bantam (Roosters Only)
Silkie
Polish (Hens Only)
Rosecomb Bantam (Hens Only)
Old English Game Bantam (Roosters Only)
Ayam Cemani
Aisian Black
Backyard Mixes
Unidentified Breeds

And here's what I plan on getting next year:
Ameraucana
Salmon Faverolles
Porcelain D'uccle
Seabright
Jersey Giant
Ayam Ketawa/Laughing Chicken(if I can find them)

I'm open to any ideas for unique mixes or long-term projects. All my birds are hatchery quality except my Ayam Cemanis which are bred to SOP.
I would say anything with polish!:love That’s probably not what you were looking for though. :gig

Cochins have a tailless look! They aren’t actually tailless though.
