    I am not allowed to have many more chickens but I thought I would share my DREAM project!!!

    I want to create a breed that is extremely friendly, small, good layer, thats pretty and a good mother!
    I would start with a blue cochin bantam for its friendlyness and cross it with a white leghorn bantam for laying ability.
    I would select the best laying pullets and breed with a blue booted bantam for the color and feathered feet.
    From that I would select, again, the best laying pullets to breed with a different blue booted bantam rooster.
    From that I would select the best Laying pullets to breed with the best colored roo.
    from that I'd pick best colored and best laying pullets to breed with a silkie roo.
    I would pick the best laying pullets to breed with the best colored roos.
    I would select the best laying blue pullets to breed with a bantam blue cochin/blue silkie cross for friendlyness and broodyness

    I would selectively breed my new breed to fit this standard:
    A heavy bodied, blue, splash, and black colored bantam, with feathered feet and a beard and a small crest, that is friendly and an awesome layer, who is also a good mother!!!
    I would call it a Camarata Bantam

    what are your dream projects/breeds???

    here is a updated shortened version!!!!

    stage 1 would take 1 or 2 months:
    Pair 1: bantam blue cochin x white leghorn bantam (these bought as adults to shorten project time...)
    pair 2: blue Silkie x blue booted bantam (these bought as adults to shorten project time...)
    stage 2 would take 6-8 months:
    Cross pair ones best laying offspring with pair twos friendliest roo offspring... buy a dutch hen and a silkie roo and cross them
    stage 3 would take 6-8 months:
    cross 1/2's offsprings... best laying offspring with a the friendliest dutch x silkie roo
    = f1 Camarata Bantams!!

    selectively breed best layers
    [​IMG]
    this would take like...
    hmmm 1.5 -2 years to get f1s!!!!

    If I did this... how many of you would want some??? [​IMG] [​IMG]
    maybe... just maybe I can ask to bend the rules a bit [​IMG]
    It isn't a county rule its a family rule! law wise i can have as many as i want... family rules...no more then 10 chickens.... i have 6... 1 rooster 5 hens... family rules also no more then 1 roo...
