    I'm what is the quickest way to create a bantam, by inbreeding or cross breeding?

    Quote:Cross breeding would be the quickest way to go up or down in size. With going down in size after cross breeding then go with line breeding to intensify the size.

    guys im not saying i will make them, i'm simply trying to learn theoretically. and in case i did ever attempted, it would be because i would like the challenge and to say i have created my own line rather than just say i bought them from someone.

    By crossbreeding. Take a bantam roo because some important bantam genes are sexlinked.
