Hey! I want to breed a new kind of chicken to practice breeding, genetics, and stuff, and to create something that is everything I like in a chicken. I have a list of the details I want it to have, and some breeds that I have that I can use to create this new breed. Below is a list of the breeds I have, and what I want this chicken to look like: The breeds I have now Silkies: Buff silkie hen with dark markings Two "partridge" silkie roosters that don't have enough red Splash silkie hen missing a toenail EE/americanas Gray barnyard mix hen - lays blue eggs Goldish brown hen - lays blue eggs Brownish hen - lays blue eggs Wyandottes: 7 golden laced hens Other: Quail d'anver bantam hen with white Barnevelder hen White rock hen Barnyard mix cockerel Salmon faverolle hen Black australorpe I think cockerel 10 red star pullets 5 light brahma pullets What I want the breed I create to look like and the breeds I may be able to use to create it: Muffs -Silkie, ee, americana, Crest -Silkie Five toes -Silkie Clean legs -Red star, wyandotte, ee, americana, rock Black skin -Silkie Blue or green eyes -? Blue ear lobes -Silkie Blue eggs -Ee, americana Good layer -Ee, americana, red star, rock, wyandotte Average size -Ee, americana, red star, rock, wyandotte Lemon Splash coloring? -? Let me know if you have suggestions about how I could create this breed. I'm not very good at this stuff. If I cross a silkie with a standard normal feathered breed, it will still have a crest wont it? What would be the first step to creating this chicken? Also, does something like this already exist? Thanks!
