I'm looking for all of the mottled breeds of LF. So far I only know of Houdans and Anconas.
Javas, Houdans, Anconas, Brahmas, Polish, Araucanas, . . . I believe there's quite a few others too.
Are you only wanting black mottled breeds ? Hinkjc is working on Mottled Orps and it you want other mottled colors then Speckled Sussex are Mottled Red Columbian and some Spangled Russian
Orloffs are too but they are supposed to be Mottled Red Duckwing like Spangled Gamefowl.
Though I'm specifically looking for black mottled breeds, I definately don't mind if you list any other mottled breeds!
The UK has Mottled Orpingtons accepted to their standard..
Here is one who is from a pair of Black Orpingtons I have. I expect to make a few more. I have her mother who molted from all Black into a Mottled as well.
Since these are from real Orpingtons there is no project here. Just selective breeding for a generation or two.
VERY nice bird! Thanks for sharing!
There are LF Mottled Cochins, just REALLY hard to find/get right now.
Would a Speckled Sussex qualify as mottled, or no? I suppose there is more to them than just mottling, right?
