I have several breeding questions. I have a gorgeous dark buff orphington roo. I would like my entire flock to have his coloring, How do I go about breeding that color in? Do I pick the darkest pullets I get off of him to breed with and get rid of the rest? And keep this going for as many generations as it takes? Also, on all my birds, I would like to get them closer to standard, around here a red chicken is starting to become just a red chicken and I want to stand out from that. So do I only breed the ones with the best qualities? And last but not least, I would like to have an apa standard book for quick reference, I really can't afford the color right now, is the black and white just as good for a beginner and what about the black and white illustration book? Any help would be appreciated. I am trying to learn all I can.
