    Are these buff laced gold & black laced gold?

    I think the buff laced sebrights are dominant white. If so I don't think it would make any difference which you had the male & female.

    I'm sorry, the link doesn't work.

    I have no experience with sebrights. I had thought they were all laced but sounds like I'm wrong. [​IMG] Sorry.

    Quote:No, you are correct. They are ALL laced.

    There are Silver Sebrights, Golden Sebrights and Buff Sebrights.

    Buff Sebrights are a buff colored birds with white "trim" around the feathers.

    call ducks, it would help to know what you are trying to accomplish in this project, as I don't think Buff Sebright x Black Rosecomb will get you anything but a mix.

    Quote:Well, first off, what is the reason behind the research?

    What is your hypothesis?
    Do you want to go on further other than a local science fair? If so, then judges look for experiments with useful information relating to society such as medical, agricultural, etc. If you are only doing it for fun, then you may not get the results that you wish.

    It would be nice to see what it would look like, but the purpose of a science fair experiment is to test a subject that may be useful. Doing something fun for yourself doesn't seem be a benefit.

    I am sorry if I am discouraging you from this, but this is what happens at a science fair. I have entered several in the past and this is what was to be done.
