    Those are going to be beautiful birds when you finish Danny!

    I'm also interested to how you started. I'm slowly recollecting my thoughts and I'm going to create a snow dusted chicken. If that's possible that is...[​IMG]

    I am not really sure exactly. Some of it was done before I started keeping records. It started with buff columbian which I made myself and blue mottled. These birds came out of a blue buff columbian hen and a buff columbian male that I assume were both split to mille. I was actually trying to produce more blue buff columbian. Here are pictures of the parents.

    It looks like a standard blue buff columbian.
