    hi
    is anybody able to please give us advice with silver laced cochin bantams
    we have done our first cross
    very typey black cochin female and a silver laced wyandotte bantam
    young cockerel
    we would love to talk or get some mentoring on are we going the right way
    we have breed our own line of columbian cochins we started in 2004 with good results and have birds we can show this season
    still need work on there frontal skirt but there is only 3 breeders including us that we know off in new zealand
    so the judges won't growl to much [we hope]
    with the silver laced we know it could take 5/8 years to get the result we would like to see because of using to wyandotte SL
    any help would be excellent [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    for the smilies you just need to put a space on each side, as in they cant be right next to a letter, then they will show the face [​IMG]

    I dont think I can be much help with answering your genetics question though. Love those Pekins though.[​IMG]

    Hi thank you for that spacing info on smiles [​IMG]
    went to the uploads on the bar above
    not being a computer wizz is annoying
    It said use this for uploads for the forum but I can't work out how to put them on the forum from there [​IMG]
    anyway its all typing pratice so thats okay
    yesterday I sat quitely watching young pens of birds let 6 pens out and it makes me laugh ,how they all have BO and they walk around each other .
    I love them when they stretch out and sun bathe
    they sure do have there own personallitys
