    Wouldn't that just be a mutt? Creating a breed takes several generations, a goal in mind, and for the resulting birds to breed true. (same leg color, earlobe color, body type, comb type, plumage color)

    Still, concerning mutts, there's lots of us who make those. Even I do. [​IMG]

    I totally want to make a new breed. I am aware it would take time, lots of time, but it is a dream of mine. I have a chicken in mind that I'm sure people would love. A hardy bird that can withstand extreme weather well. A bearded bird; because beards are so darn cute. I would, ideally, use good layers in the mix, and I like chocolate-colored eggs. I would like it to look like a Leghorn in build; not too terribly lanky nor too heavy-set, more of a streamlined shape. I would like it to have V-shaped comb like a La Fleche, because large-combed birds are subsceptible to frostbite and because I love the way the V combs look. I would like the following colors: Pyle, Wheaten, Blue, Silver and Golden-laced, Black, and White.

    Wouldn't that be gorgeous?

    Yes!!!!! This is something I have been thinking about for a while now. I live in central California and I see my cochin, wyandottes, etc. struggle in the heat. I am moving towards Warm Weather breeds. I plan to cross some of the following to work toward a partridge/wheaten (camo colors for predators), dark egg laying (penedesenca and BCM blood), or olive egg layer ( AMeracauna x Pene), bird that can forage for much of its food, can fly to escape the myriad predators here, and is personable with humans. Wish everyone luck on their projects. This is how new breeds are created. All breeds were once "mutts".

    I know someone who bred a new breed [​IMG] . The end result is beautiful. They are not as big as, say as Isa Brown, because they have some bantam. The have light markings ( speckled sussex coming in here ) and come in a few different colours. Very beautiful [​IMG]
