    Just think what fun it would be to create a new breed. All breeds evolved from crosses of other breeds. Maybe you have an exceptionaly beautiful or extreme looking crossbreed in your pen. Maybe your 4 way crosses are laying 320 eggs a year. Maybe your favorite cross breeds are breeding on to all have similar traits. Maybe you have a unique color. Do you have a white polish with a black crest? try it !
    Let us see your pictures of amazing looking crossbreeds that you would like to establish as a breed

    I posted this pic before but I want this black star/buff orp hen to become a breed. I'm not sure what mix of the 2 she is at this point. Perhaps 3/4 black star because the definite 1st generation 50/50 crosses are really ugly! I hatched another chick that is getting the same coloration as her. If it is a boy, then I hit the jackpot! However, I am pretty sure it's a hen since so far all of the boys i've hatched have a reddish color to them and no black, like a darker red buff orp and so far there have been no females that weren't black.

    Quote:Black crested white polish have been created and are an accepted variety by the APA in LF polish.

    Protodon, the males of that pattern will not look like the females, they will have a different pattern, likely somewhat similar to a BBR.

    I am going to work on mille fleur Japanese. I don't know if they have been done before and don't care. It is just for fun for me. I am sure since I know nothing, it will take a while. Maybe I will never end up with a Japanese but that is ok too. Right now with just the first cross, I am loving these birds and may just end up with a different breed altogether.

    I want to create a Blue Speckled Sussex. (Blue Speckled Sussington??, Sorpington? Sexington?), but my girls need to start laying first! I'll be sure to post pix, but that may be a year down the line.
