    what's the oddest looking bird you've had while trying to produce a new color or breed? or have you ever had a cross go totally opposite the way you where trying to achieve?

    I think Frizzles are the oddest looking birds, hands down. Or maybe Naked-Necks.

  9. Wow! I hope your condition isn't permanent.

    They are O D D , not unexpected --- I breeded them to be that way [​IMG]
    But in answer to your question, Pokey.
    A totally weird thing here is "why was I getting 'wild' colors from my black, blue, splash Ameraucana pen".

    The other great surprise are the nearly comb-less / wattle-less birds from a cross. I would have expected a modified pea-type or middle-of-the-road type comb.
    But these just have a flat place where a comb would be.

    I expect there are stranger things to come [​IMG]

    And I shouldn't be insulting them, anyway. After all, I adore frizzled cochins. Why not frizzled nns? [​IMG]
