    I'd like to get a standard size solid yellow or buff but with a black tail, I'm shooting for rosecomb so thinking Wyndotte but I'd like to get leghorn type tail. Any suggestions on what to cross?

    Buff Brahma are buff columbian(with stippling in their necks) so they are not a Black Tail Buff type of bird.. and they also have feathered shanks, I donĀ“t know if he also wants that..

    the closest thing I could came up is, a Db restricted bird with a rose comb, have you thought about black tail buff OEGs?(they lack rosecomb) or how about a black tail buff rose comb bantam?
