    Does "NN" mean Naked Necks? If so, in what color?

    Can anyone give me a lead on some show quality campines? I am particularly looking for sliver campines.

    Exactly right. I want to make them look a bit more Dorking while still maintaining the
    Sussex SOP. I want a bit more low stationed "bottle" shape.
    Thanks,
    Karen

    Bob also talked about the "stay white" gene. How the eb based Columbians would stay white like yours if they inherited that factor/gene. I am not sure if it really was a particular gene or a simple threshold event/factor of some kind. I guess a veteran breeder could explain it better than I.
    Best,

    Our options are open....anything but buff.

    EDIT: We have some reasonably good birds from the accepted colors but neither of us is crazy about the color buff.

    While this might be true of some strains in some locations I have not seen this ever mentioned in my years of research and now owning these birds... just sayin'

    Thank you, good to know. It was the first I had heard of it as well.
