Standard Barred Cochin! Breeding question?


In the Brooder

I saw a standard Barred Cochin hen at a ladies house one time and absolutely fell in love with the breed and color! I have been searching for hen and it seems not many of any people in my area even raise them.. So I orderes 3 pulleys and a cockerel from ideal.. I want to start breeding them next year.. My question is did I make a mistake my getting them from ideal? Can I breed them to each other? How do I know if they are worth breeding to each other? And do I need to breed them to another color like I have seen for other barred chickens? I'm new to this but like I said I want to start this up!! TIA
