I'm moving to Arizona; first thing I think about is to order chicks ! My idea is to start a flock of Dark Brahma. Then I watch different hatcheries and I'd like to order 20 different breeds ! But the best is to take just one breed. I already have chicks of Blue Orpington, Black Copper Marans and Olive Eggers. So I'm thinking about Brahma : Dark because is the color I like the best between the 3 I can find ( Light, Buff, Dark ); they are big and gentle; people says that they lay good and they do pretty well also in hot weather. Is there a way I can breed Blue Partridge Brahma ( that would be my favorite color ) starting from Dark Brahma ? Or how can I breed Blue Laced Gold Orpington having already Blue Orpington ?
