    I did a search and couldn't find too much. What does it take to 'create' porcelain and get it to the point where it breeds true?

    Thanks guys!

    You need to get two copies of lavander into a mille fluer. I will leave it to some one with more experience to tell you how. Every way I can think of is a mess.

    I wish there were a porcelain variant in Ameraucanas. I think it's so pretty in the d'Uccles I see on here.

    There are several breeds that come in the Porcelain variety.....d'Uccles, d'Anvers, OE Game, Cochins, Pyncheons, Rosecombs, and a few large fowl varieties are being created as well. I breed some of my Porcelains with my Mille Fleur birds all of the time.....and back and forth. When in good feather and proper color and pattern...they are a VERY striking bird.

    ChickenStalker is working on Lavender Wheatens, the males will look kinda similar. Same isabel coloration, just not spangled, instead more solid patches of yellow vs lavender.
