I am trying to get a pied d'uccle project going. After a bunch of research with out finding ver much at all,I came upon an article where they produced pied sumatras using black sumatras and barred rocks.The rooster was carrying the pied gene (P gene) so they came to the conclusion that the hen did not after not producing any pied chicks. Though they did nreed the male nack to the offspring.This created sumatras with a lot of white as chicks but once fully feathered they had normal black plumage,with them showing some white feathers. I understand the pied condition gene whatever you feel like calling it, just not how to get this color,the article left out a lot of ingo on the creation possibly to keep others from creating it,who knows.If anyone knows anything more about this please let me know.I'm fascinated with this color after seeing button quails and guineas and ducks in this color.Also are there any bantam breeds or standard that are available in this color? Thanks for any imformation.
