    Yes & too tired to detail... I have bookmarked the thread & will contribute when not so sleepy eyed. I have other creations as well. Sunflowers are a 3rd generation mix. Like a parrot and total love starved as far as human attention.:p

    Oh my goodness I can't wait to make my first custom breeds, it's midnight here so I'm fixing to sleep in a bit but I would love to hear how you did this, I have some buckeyes, black Australorp, Barred rocks , and then a free range flock with some rsl hens , and what I believed to be golden laced Wyandottes but who knows by the green and blue eggs mixed in. I also ( when they're in breeding season) have access to game roosters that are all sadly enough in the fighting buisness. But I hope to do some crosses and make a breed as you did. I was thinking of maybe breeding the buckeyes to the game ( of course I know buckeyes have game in them) and then breeding that back to a Barred Rock, and keeping the meanest rooster as a protector as we have lots of predators around . Who knows tho they may turn to be a bit to aggressive with those fighting genes

    I have Brahma (either dark or Buff) Cream Crested Legbar crosses! Two hens, thankfully no roos. Although, those would be very handsome roos! Will post pics and for info later today( its 12:07AM here ;) ).
