Honestly it's been that long since I have bred one I can't remember. I think it will stay roughly the same. The reason is that it is from a Lut-Alb pairing, so it is split blue. I could breed it to a well coloured lut or split lut or use it to breed albs, all is not lost. It will be a really handy hen.

Very nice babies Dan, I did the same, put a lutino cock with an albino hen and got a lutino hen and she is quite nice too but my plan was to pair like that so I can put the lutino hen with my clear body next year and they will be both split blue.

Yeah got my fingers crossed with her Julie, she could be a real cracker. Having a good run at the moment, have a few in the nest feathering up very nicely. Just waiting for something to go terribly wrong......

The latest offerings are starting to show some directional feather. Two of the birds have a GB parent. Thanks GB! Her birds certainly carry the right sort of feather.

I lost one nice grey green but I have it's sibling who is just as good. Things are going okay GB. Not breeding heaps but breeding keepers at the moment. Starting to slow down and slowly emptying the breeding cages.

 

Looks like I am a cinnamon breeder again which is interesting since that was my most succesful variety last time around.

 

That grey green above which is a dom pied was from the Henry George cinnamon and that dom pied hen that I got from your friend. He is a big strong boy, you can't tell too much from that photo but he will be a nice bird. You know where the other 2 have come from.

Very nice Dan, you must be pleased. I like them all but the but the yellow is really nice, I think it is because I am partial to them but can never breed one worth keeping.

She's nice Julie, has lovely soft feather and good direction. At this stage she is on the smaller side. She is from a Fox stud hen. Maybe you should see her about a yellowface. The other two are big strong birds with the grey green pied being a big solid cock bird. I will get some better photos of him.

 

The cinnamon grey green is really showy with classy lines and lovely feather. Am really rapt with her. She is a hen I can really build my stud on. Bred from a Fox stud cock bird :) and a bird with a crook hip given to me by Graham Tevelein.

Hey GB. Will PM you. I have more than enough to work with next season now so I can probably get some big cock birds to you.

I love it when you get a hen like that that has got a bit about her and doesn't have a heap of feather. I reckon those are the birds that you can really work with because you know that it they look good without feather they will look great when you add a bit of feather to thier offspring. They are the sort of birds I try to buy.

 

The dom pied is a big strong boy with length and shoulder. He has really good permanent directional feather, he also has heaps of backskull. It's funny how birds with backskull can lose thier impact a bit as it gives the impression that they are pinched at the front where really they are just extra wide through the skull. It's all about getting the proportions right I suppose.

 

Edit: The pied is out of Henry George's Bob Smith line. He definitely has a bit of a Bob Smith look about him.
