    Now these are cases in which inbreeding would be absolutely necessary, yes? [​IMG]

    What about "Silvered Black" Marans? I read somewhere that these would soon be recognized by the French. Dunno how old that info. was or what the current status of that variety is, or whether there are any of those in the US.

    Bueller?
