    Hey guys. I've been trying to find a list/graph/chart of some sort of all the colors you can make through selective breeding (with the OEG [bantam] variety). I've had a lot of success in the past with mixing blues with B.B.Reds to make Blue Breasted Reds, Blacks with B.B.Reds to make Brown Red, and mixing Barred with B.B.Red to make Crele. Mixing white with B.B.Red makes Red Pyle. Mixing Black with Wheaten makes Brassy Back. I haven't been able to find any other color combos, but I'm very interested everyone's feedback.

    It's cute to see the genetics of the great grandbabies of a brown red be perfectly B.B.Red. My bator is like drawing out of a hat now! lol

    i know this was posted long ago so maybe you have already found the info you were looking for but their is a book called "A Guide for Breeding Old English Game Bantams". i dont have it myself but i do have a sample of it and it seems very informative. if you want i could give you the info on how to get it.
