    I'm newly studying breeding in hopes of creating beautiful healthy birds out of these birds that I was very fortunate to be given. I appreciate any and all info one may share with me. Thanks[​IMG]

    Since you have no colors or patterns to worry about then your task is much easier since you have solid colored birds. Hatch a bunch of chicks and grow them out and see if they produce better males or females. Most flocks have a tendency to breed like that. Did the previous owner have any thoughts about these birds on this matter?
