Hi Keith, My wheaten came as sports from my cockerel breeder browns with no outcross so I don't know how yours will go, I suggest that you try and keep good records of your chicks. Keeping good records is very important in any genetic experiment and also keeping track of the offspring. you may get something that looks like a brown but you should not mix it with other browns by accident. I find toe punch a very good way of keeping colours separate.

Red Anconas came from Michael's line after he passed away. I got a setting of eggs from another breeder in Sydney and have gone on from there. Lavenders come out occassionally but there aren't any established lines or breeders. I've only had the 2 pullets and they haven't bred on, their chicks were all blue or black. I'm pretty sure they were sport from the cuckoos. I have some photos I'm going to post on the site later

Hi Great to see that the rarer colours are still being bred in UK. I'm currently trying to get a line of Grey or Birchen Leghorns, the males are coming on a regular basis but the females are a bit harder to get. The couple I have bred are very much dark legged despite being bred from pullet breeder blacks and cuckoos originally. I also have a line of wheaten leghorns, sports of cockerel breeder browns. Very good type.
