    I do not believe there is "formally", but of course you can always create a project to begin a light buff, although there are probably some running around on here.

    Depends on what you mean by 'Light Buff'? If you can give me a Genome I can tell you how to breed some...

    I only have one Buff right now, but from what I've seen, there are varying shades of Buff. Smudgey areas and black feathers are not desired. A "Clear Buff" color is more desireable, the deeper the color, the better from what I've seen. Here is my lone girl over a month ago. She keeps getting darker with age.

    Nope, not blonde here anyway. This girl reminds me of a "Creamsicle", remember them? Orange popsicle on the outside, and vanilla ice cream on the inside. YUM! [​IMG]

    I like her! I know most like the darker buffs and breed towards that, but I think this color is beautiful. [​IMG]

    Here is my daughter's buff that she shows. She does very well and has won Champion Feather Leg. I consider her a light buff.
