    He broke the colors out since we are breeding for specific colors in these strains.

    Still a work in progress but moving forward each generation.

    I thought NPIP numbers were for the individual farm/breeder/keeper, not the breed or variety?

    Same here, Sonoran. Unless some states have set up some wacky system that makes no sense.

    Maybe it was a one time test for specific birds for a show? I know I had to have that done for Shawnee, but I don't recall that they listed variety, just number of birds and maybe their breeds?

    In Oklahoma a NPIP is a participant number for the individual and or a farm. This is interesting that some states categorize for each breed.
