I am excited to say that I have built breeder coops and will be looking into purchasing some breeds to breed! I have never actually had breeding pens; just a rooster or two. Very, very excited. Now I have a few questions. I want to purchase a trio or quad of OEGB's at the show coming up in our area soon, but I already have three OEGB hens. I'd like to add them to the mix, but I have two Crele's, and one Self blue. If I purchase a rooster/trio of one color and add my hens, will I get certain colors? Or will the varieties be un-recognized by the ABA? I like surprises, so I would hope that I can put together a pen of OEGB's and get lots of the parent's colors. Am I making sense? I tend not to do so on the internet. Thanks for any input! I'm excited to hatch my own bird's eggs soon!
