I am starting this thread to breeders of English Orpingtons to share their knowledge on how to breed for specific genetic traits. A few topics I would like to be discussed is: Breeding for size: What is the best way to increase the size? (height, width, weight and overall size) Breeding for color: What is the perfect shade of Blue? How to improve the lacing on the blues? Breeding for type: What is the correct type or body shape? How to improve the type?
