Will crests be part of the finished goal?

yes they need to have crest .
we are working on F2 back cross to marans roosters to add feathered legs . we hatched few under broody hens .they look good .only have 9 chicks .
best pullets are penned with NN rooster .we want to add the NN genes to the project .

hope all the NN chicks will be cockerels . need them for my stage 3 of my breeding programs .
best cockerels from this F2 progeny will be mated back to original F1 hens on one side and to F2 hens from Marans roos over F1 other cross . that will give me 2 different F3 Marneck chooks.
F3 from F2 NN X F1 will have .37.5% marans , 37.5% CLB and 25% NN genes { NN and crest minimum legs feathering plus colored eggs }.
F3 from F2 NN X Marans hens will have 62.5% marans ,25% NN and 12,3 % CLB genes
[ NN with feathered legs minimum crest and colored eggs }

still have to make F2 from F1 X F1 that will give me another branch to breed from specifically for a Blue eggs and gorgeous crest .
