    I have an excess of hens in different breeds and colors. I do have some projects going on and I am breeding pure as well, but would like to tinker with making some pretty chickens that people would buy for their beauty, regardless of breed. I would use my less typy hens with 1 or 2 roos in each pen. I do not know as much about color genetics as many of you do. Please share lots of ideas! This is what I have availabe for mixed pens:

    Hens: bantam cochins in white, buff, red, black, partridge.
    White bantam sultans.
    Silver-laced polish, standard size.
    Silkies in white, buff, black, blue, partridge

    Roos: bantam cochins in all the colors I mentioned above, plus a mottled. White frizzle and black frizzle.
    White Sultan bantam.
    Buff turken bantam.
    Mille Fleur d'Uccle.
    Large fowl polish in silver-laced, red, buff, blue, and black.
    Silkies in white, buff, black, and partridge.

    Thanks in advance!

    That is so much variety, there is no knowing what you will get!
