I have two BBR Phoenixes & 6 eggs in the incubator right now. My Cockerel is about 10 months old and he’s a beaut but I’m worried about his breast/chest; it’s speckled with white feathers. Show-quality Phoenixes are hard to get a hold of here since there’s only one breeder—that I know of— and she’s where I sourced my birds from. How can I selectively breed towards a totally black breast/chest? If I were to pluck the white feathers, would they grow in black? He had white feathers on his main tail and they grew in black after I plucked them.
