    Hello everyone I was thinking it would be nice to have a few porcelain orpingtons around but don't have a idea to create them!If anyone have some info on creating the porcelain color please help me!
     
  2. i'm new to genetics but wouldn't you breed lilacs or like the light blue ones and then take the recessive gene from those chickens and breed them and maybe intraduce a bit of lacing and just do selective breeding?
