I'm fairly new to chickens as far as really getting into breeding etc. I've got egg layers, and have had various banties for years, my parents have had them for a long time, etc. So I have general experience, but have decided to get into breeding some. I've got some pens going up and all that, but have a question about working towards a new goal. I have a rooster who is a cochin bantam cross, and I absolutely love him, he looks like a cochin bantam, but his colors are awesome. He's mottled on the chest, with green and reds in his tail and body. I'm planning on trying to replicate him. Is this acceptable in the chicken world? I breed and show quality chinchillas, and I understand that quality and consistency takes work and time ( usually lots of that). I know about general genetics, and much more about chinchilla genetics obviously, and am willing to learn about "chicken genes" I was just wondering if I could get some opinions on it, and maybe some advice on the best ways to work towards my goal! Thanks!
