    Sorry i know its a very often asked question, but I'm trying to make lemon blue game bantams, I've been raising brown reds and blue reds, i don't have lemon blues, they're pretty hard to find being good quality other than being at the shows, but the next show is in December.....so, i have been told to use a blue red sport rooster (which i have) crossed onto a brown red hen to produce lemon blue, just wondering if this will work and will they be good quality doing it this way? Or should i just wait till December and buy a lemon blue rooster at the show? Thanks

    I have lemon blues but don't know what you can breed to get them, other than lemon blue sports bred to brown reds. I have heard breeding blue wheatens to brown reds but don't know if it would work. And I was wondering if u ever bred blue reds to brown reds and if so did it work?
