Lets make a new Japanese bantam color! i'm bored of all the other ones
Well, I wasn't quite sure what to think of this but I'll toss in a question: What color do you dream of?
someting like silver duckwing, golden, lavander.
They have birchen ones, thats close to SDW. I would like to see Red shouldered japs (like yokohamas)
well, red quill too, plus wheaten! (wheaten is my favorite chicken color!)
Quote:That would be AWESOME!
well, how do we make these colors?
You'd have to bring in birds from similar breeds with that color, and make crossbreds for a while. Japs have been muddying up the Serama genepool for years, so maybe you could import some of those genes back? Wheaten is an accepted Serama color; I have three of them myself! And I thought there were lavender japs? Maybe not. You might have to dip into the OEGB genepool for that. It will take lots of birds over several years, but it sounds like fun!
hmm, this could get interesting.
I have seen wheaten, golden, silver, and many other colors for sale on eggbid in the last few years. If you search long enough you can find anything.
