    Brabanters crosses rarely ever pass on their crests, as they're small enough as is. Also, a Brabanter cross would either create sex linked offspring or silver/"golden" offspring.

    And Brabanters are pretty rare already. [​IMG]

    Good point really, but hatchery brabanters I wouldn't rule out. Otherwise I probably wouldn't of thought of it. Just thought he bared a resemblance to them [​IMG]. These aren't exactly breeds I focus on though, I'm just a gamefowl breeder. The closest I get to non-game breeds are OEGB's, and Kraienkoeppes.. Which were once game! [​IMG]
