    I like the contrast of a white laced red pattern, would look good on a Brahma.

    Hi dan, i would just like to say these are some lovely birds. I believe brahmas are the prettiest of the chicken world, just my opinion, and after reading thru this topic and the colors you have created like a blue laced gold or a white laced red would be stunning. I would love to have a few of them just to look at since i dont breed or show. lol I feel you cant go wrong with any color of a brahma. Well maybe a barred or cuckoo. LOL, again lovely work, John.
