    I'd like to make a red partridge or lemon cuckoo marans.

    Or to breed the colored egg gene into any of the larger full-bodied breeds like Orps or Jersey Giants.

    I wonder if this thread will get featured :)

    I've always wanted to make a blue egg layer that looks like a Sultan or a Jubilee d'Uccle

    A Sultan that laid blue would be so cool!! Or sage green like an olive egger.
