I see in the chicken section numerous color projects going on. However, I rarely hear of waterfowl projects. Is anyone working on such a project? What is your goal color?
"Mossy" is splotchy color on each individual feather and it is usually a laced feather. It's a defect, by the way, but very pretty.OregonBlues, what's 'mossy' mean in your context?
Here in Australia we have just had the 2nd edition of the Poultry Standards published- and sadly they have made a change to the cinnamon Runner- so right now I am contemplating starting over with them. Sadly it means the last two years I have spent was all for nothing as I will not be able to use the birds I have to recreate them to fit the standards and have a bird that I like the look of. Not too sure what I will do- it would be sad to loose such a rare breed- but with space limitations- I dont have the room for such a big project at this point in time.
