well to start off about half of our flock are mutts. I have 1 SLW, 1 partridge cochin chick, 5 buff bramahn chicks, 1 red star chick, 1 barred rock rooster, 1 game rooster (has purple sheen to back and neck feathers), 1 game hen, 1 SLW/RIR hen (looks like a GLW), 2 mutt hens (game hen/mutt roo), 2 mutt roos (SLW hen/mutt roo), 1 red and blue mutt, 3 white and black bearded mutts (SLW/easter egger), 4 california whites (2 roo 2 hen), 1 buff pied (california white/buff orp), 1 brown mutt hen. also have 15 meat chicks, but those aren't making it to breeding age anyway. the project: I want full sized, colored egg laying, bearded, feather footed, top hated, good setters. prefer partridge, red or buff coloring. may add 5 toes and "puffy" like cochins as well. and i want to breed them myself. yes i know i will have to order some birds to get all of these qualities. but i want to do it. it's a hobby, all my chickens have a nice free ranging life. don't want to do any genetic damage to any of my birds. are any of these traits dangerous to chickens or dangerous in combination. top hats sometimes have problems seeing through the feathers but thats not a health problem really. any suggestions on breeds i might want to pick up. might take awhile but I have no plans on stopping raising chickens so i have plenty of time and space.
