Bill, yup true Crele. It's going to depend on how my Partridge project goes though, I need to have that color establish before I start working on the Crele. I have one Patridge hen now that I plan to use to recreate more. If I can get that color solidified I will add the barring from Cuckoo Orps to create the Crele pattern.
My main focus is my BBS, it's fun to have a few other colors running around with the rest of the flock though.
It took a few months to figure out where my Silver Duckwings were coming from. Then it all clicked. I had one Lemon Blue Ameraucana looking hen that came from my Buff/Black cock (BUSTOFF) and she was bred by my fence hoping Birchen Marans. In addition to Silver Crele Orps, I prolly can make a better go at making Silver Crele Marans. This Duckwing lays a very nice dark brown egg. Somewhere around 6 on the Marans scale of egg color. Right now I put some of her eggs, who are fertilized by my Cuckoo cockerels, in a week and eat the rest. I too am more wanting to solidify my standard color Orps before filling my bators up with project eggs. I am throwing in a few Cuckoo eggs too with these Duckwing eggs. So I am a snail crawling along with my projects till summer begins
