I am new to the world of breeding and hoping to develop some columbian cochins. Yes, I know there are some already beautiful birds out there, but where I am it is just too expensive for me to get a few birds shipped to me. I have an entire flock of columbian Rock bantams here, and quite frankly Way too many roos. I was thinking about getting some White Cochin Pullets and putting them together. I know I would lose some feathering on the feet, but would the coloring come through alright? I would breed back in the feathering on the feet after I got color correct. Am I going about genetics all wrong?
