Hi to all crested breeders,
I have been breeding this variety for 35 years and still learning about them.
Breeding a Crested to normals is quite okay but you must understand about the prepotency of the crested gene in the crested bird. Breeding just any crest to a normal may lead to the dissaperance of the variety in your aviary.
Breeding Crest to crest first is the best.
F/C - F/C gives a chick which I call a DF this is the bird to out cross to the normal and any chick that is crested bring it back to the F/C.
Great information. Thanks Rob Any photos of yours ?
I have photo's on my main computor (being looked at at the moment) working with my lap top and nothing on this one.
