Bred this handsome fella over 4 Legbar ladies, after his matching hens proved to have problematic hatching...

I have 8 pullets in 2 shades, light or dark, mostly of the darker. The oldest are all laying blue. I retained 3 cockerels but 1 is out for being scrawny. (the middle one in the picture above)

They turned out so wonderfully consistent AND auto sexing! I wonder what the second generation will do? I can breed back to the Legbar not not the Twentse (sold them as yard ornaments).

I'm trying an outcross next year with half of the girls, was thinking that next generation is when I needed to go back to the Legbar to try and keep the auto sexing and blue egg thing. The Walnut comb I heard was dominant, we'll see how that goes forward.

I'm loving the saddle feathers on the boys!
