    I was perusing the pekinbantams.com website and in their image gallery are photos of gorgeous "mille fleur" cochins...as we would call them.

    They call them "porcelain".

    Here is the link...you may have to scroll down on the left and click on "porcelain".

    The creles are the ones that I would love to develop. Don't have the time or space right now...just wish I would buy a pair!!

    crele should be a cinch. cross barred on a non-black color is what I believe makes crele. I have some crele partridge silkie/cuckoo marans roos that look much brighter than those roosters on the uk site.

    Quote:I have a lovely barred roo. See photo below.(He was molting, so not in the best feather.) So exactly what would I cross him on to get the crele? Maybe I have more room than I thought! [​IMG]
