    The BLR for dummies thread got me thinking... Would someone please post something similar for how to get Mille Fluer? (Specifically, Cochins [​IMG] )

    MILLE FLEUR

    e^Wh -- wheaten down color. Wheaten/whitish colored female. Male Red/Silver hackle and saddle, with a black breast.

    s+ -- sex link gold, we want a red bird, not a white/silver one. Now we have a Gold Wheaten instead of a Silver Wheaten.

    Co -- columbian removes the black from the breast of the male. Now we have a Buff Columbian. Makes males and females the same color.

    mo -- mottled. recessive 2 genes required. This adds the black bar and white dot. to the end of the feather. Now we have a Mille Fleur!!!

    If we add one gene of Bl we will have a Blue Mille Fleur.

    Take the same Mile Fleur that we just built. If lav -- lavender is added in 2 doses (it's recessive) we will have a Porcelain.

    FYI There are already some pretty nice project Mille Fluer Cochins in the works, unless you just want to make them yourself, it would save time and money to just buy some of the already existing ones.
