    Hi.
    I'm just starting out. Right now I have a trio of chantecler and a small group of buckeyes.
    So... I'm hatching right now.
    Next year, which offspring can I breed with which parent? I.e. father cock over daughter hen or son cock over mother hen? Brothers and sisters?

    What qualities are you looking for? I would wait till they grew up some so you could see what type of things like colors, feathers, and personalities that you like and breed accordingly.

    I'm looking for SOP.
    I was under the impression that a certain crossing wasn't a healthy way to go.

    You probably would have been more elegant. How would you proceed with the subsiquent generations?
    Best,

    Hey Marvin, @nicalandia
    White hot question from the Sussex world. Some say LS can have grey in the underfluff. I say no. Must be white to the skin. Can youthinky of any reason how grey underfluff could happen in bird (LS) whose formula was eWh/eWh S/S Co/Co ???
    Thanks, Karen
