    Hi!

    Is there any breeder in Europe that have this color or know anybody? I live in Sweden and I want it sooo bad! ... But I can't find anyone who have it. [​IMG]

    Or... Is it a way to get a similar color by crossing 2 colors that may exist here?

    Okey. [​IMG] I was on your website (came in by google of a "mistake", lol! ;D), beatiful birds you have! I really love that new color on the dutch x rosecomb bantam cross! [​IMG] What breed should you recommender to cross with modern english game bantams tog get an offspring that we can work with to get a silver fawn "colirish" modern game bantam? And what color on the game bird would you use to cross with the other breed (and what color on the other breed)?

    Well, you do not have that much choice.
    You could start with fawn silver duckwing, eg dutch bantam or OEGB, and in your gamebirds with (silver)birchen.
    F1 should be birchenlike, especially the males. 50% dun- and 50% black patterned.
    Was thinking to switch from duckwing to birchen also to have a more typical chocolate color on the hens.
    The fawn silver duckwing pullets are a bit pastel/diluted looking you see.
