This forum is being started in hope to gather lots of information on down color and what developes from it!! I believe that if many people work together so that we are able to document some breeding and what comes of it, we Can help move the serama forward for those of us who want to develope certain color strains. I personally would like to work towards the COCOPOP color. This is not going to be easy but we do have some fantastic people on BYC that really have a grasp on chicken color!! In order to start identifying colors and what potentially can come from our clutches, Please post a pic of the parents of the chicks in question. I have goals and I have had a few people offer advise and help, but I by no means claim to be an expert in chicken color.. MY starting this Forum I hope to give others an idea of what may come when you pair one bird with another.. A chicks down color is a very good indicater of what will come. * I think what would really be helpful is to identify what we see in the adults and apply what those breeding genettics paired can produce. This Forum will be interactive, if you post pics of your chicks , PLEASE re post pics at least a month laiter to others can see feather development. The ideal would be to see the down within the first week, then feathers at 4 weeks-8 weeks and 4 months!! cockerel Pullet when crossed they produced this chick 1 week old 11 weeks old this is 3 4 day old full siblings from the above pair of seramas 06/16/2011 I will post pics of them in 4 weeks!!
