here what I m trying to say .Thank you! I just have to look through the birds and find a clear eyed pullet off Dark Angel. So far there are none. Would a clear eyed pullet from his brother be okay as long as her copper and type is good?
Dukes is the foundation sire = replaced by 2 sons ,half brothers
Dark Angel line and Dark Halo line = you bred them this year . you have both they progeny .
So now we have to maintain both sire lines =
Dark Halo has to go because he is aggressive plus his son Broken wing look to be a good replacement .
Broken wing will paired with pullets with Dark eyes regardless where they come from ,
Dark Angel we don t have his son to work with .plus he is good rooster . we need to mate him to good colored eyes pullets regardless where they come from .
keeping both sire line going will help you fix the fault very quick , you don t have to back cross .
cousin breeding is more efficient
if Dark Angel give you a replacement son ,that will be good .
