    Ok i am working on one project so far, makeing the frizzzled D'uccles.
    So far i have a milli fluer d'uccle and a Black Gold milli d'uccle , so far they carry like teh d'uccles.

    Now, here is the other project i can start on, i mean its already started, and i did not even realize that till now! LOL
    I have 2 Milli fluers that i am cat tell yet if they will carry like the d'uccle or cochin bantams.
    what i just realized is they are half cochin bantams (well that i knew already) But what i just realized is they are milli fluers and i can cross them back over to the cochin bantams to get Milli fluer pattern cochin bantams!

    What do you guys think?
    And what color do i cross back with?

    Sorry, but I just couldn't entirely understand what you're talking about. . . So, you have Bantam Cochin crosses, yes? And they're half Millie Fluer ? And you're wanting to make such pattern? Do they resemble Cochins at all? Are they from good quality/type parents? What color is the Cochin part?

    I thought there's already a project going for this. . . [​IMG]

    Shay started a project of frizzled Duccles by crossing Frizzled cochins with MF Duccles. Im guessing her goal is to use the F1 chicks that have more Duccle "Type" for creating the frizzle duccle. So what she is asking is what could she breed the "Cochin Type" cross to, to start a MF Cochin project as well.

    I crossed a red frizzle cochin to my d'uccles, i got some frizzled and some smooth, and some are milli fluer.

    Now my frizzled ones are looking d'uccle, so i am breeding those bake to d'uccle when they get older.
    The frizzle cochin bantam that i used has poor quility on the feathers on the legs and feet (which is why i choose him for the project of the d'uccles)
    The smooth babys are not great quility on legs and feet which is what i wanted in teh frizzled one to come more of the d'uccle side.

    Now teh smooth feathered milli fluers are Miil fluer d'uccle cross red cochin bantams, my question is for these ones, should i go ahead and breed those ones back to the cochin bantams to get milli fluer patterns in my cochin bantams, and what color should i breed with them?
