I would love to see more pic's of colours, type and utility birds


And it got me thinking about what others are doing. I too would love to see some of your birds that don't "meet" the Standard, but are interesting, colourful, useful or loved!

Ruff, you must have something? You always seem to have beautiful birds.

I will start, just one of my whiskers that some of you have already seen.

Here is a rooster I bred - ancona *langshan. I wanted a nice looking tall roo that kept away from people (ie a little wary but still calm) to reduce the risk of an attack roo. He was just that. A friend came out to see the chooks and fell in love. She wanted a roo for her cross-layers that had less chance of attacking her kids. He was perfect so I gave him to her. He is still perfect for her family.

Now the 'unstandard' bird is something I do have lol.

Here's a rooster I prepared earlier.

Anyone want to guess what he's made of?

Ruff they are absolutley lovely! i love some of the colours that you are putting into different breeds. :D That blue eyed pekin is rather lovely too. i have never seen a blue eyed chook before!

I think i need to move closer so i can buy all your excess birds from you.

Well, here are my wyandotte varieties that are not in the standard.


I think the first one here is awesome, yet it is not in the standard. It is a White(Splash) laced Buff wyandotte. It actually breeds true, and would only improve in quality with breeding, but alas, 'no way jose'.


Image

Someone has taken this variety on with me so I hope we can improve this over time.



And this could be the start of a Blue Coronation Buff Wyandotte variety (Blue as opposed to lavender).


Image

I would try to remove the lacing but keep the Columbian gene. Would make a lovely purple and orange bird. I got a Trio of these if anyone is interested in trying to create something.
