    Need opinions on this

    I'm looking to bantam an exsiting breed
    I'd like to create platinum Sussex bantams and speckled Sussex bantams although I'm sure they are out there like the light bantams and coronations it's proving impossible to find them in Australia so I've decided to try my hand at breeding them instead any tips on how to go about this or Any genetic straights that I should keep my eye out for I've started by putting a small platinum girl in with my coronation bantams she's about the same size as the bantam roo and I aalready have a small speckled Sussex hen that's about the same size as the bantam hens

    Any suggestions or tips would be much appreciated
