    There is a picture of one of the parents of my barred tailed Japanese bantams that were developed by my frined, Jim Lucas. He told me he developed this color pattern, but I really did't pay that much attention.

    I love my little odd colored Japs. [​IMG]

    Wow, those are really pretty birds! How many do you have, and can you post some pics of yours?

    Do you know how he created them?

    I have 6 tiny chicks, 2 solid barred pullets, one barred tailed cockerell and a trio of adults.
    I have pictures on my BYC web page under "bantams" and on this thread too:

    I don't know how he made them. I will have to ask next time I see him so I an keep the color going in my flock.

    Whoa, you have a LOT of roosters, and each one is so handsome! You truly do have a rainbow of birds in your flock. BTW, I love your expression "yard confetti." [​IMG]

    I love "Yard Confetti" too. I got it from someone on here, but don't remember who it was.

    Here is my main roo. I have only had these birds for 2 weeks.

    The light barring on his hackles adds a nice effect to his overall appearance. He has a really nice comb, too. [​IMG]
