    Interesting, I would think you 'could' get some that are blue crele (blue barred background with crele markings), though I'm not sure what all you'd have to do to get there [​IMG]

    I have seen a pic somewhere of a blue crele roo. If I remember correctly it was a Penedesenca rooster. I think it was from Luann Keller in Greer SC.
