We have (what we were told) is an OEGB, BBR with a partridge breast. His name is Sir Banty. He's a proud little poser who is unbelievably good natured with his flock of 84 RIR and Partridge Cochin, so we'd like to have some of his chicks around.
We purchased him as an adult, so we have no idea how old he is or why he was bred to look like he does, so we'd like to breed him ASAP to the right females to have others with the correct type/ coloring to his- (I know there are many types) as we'd like to maintain the partridge chest feathers if possible. He's probably way off from show quality, but he's a pretty and friendly little fellow.
So my question is, what type of female bantam should we breed him to? And can someone recommend a reliable source of chicks or eggs? Thank you so much for your replies.
