Thank you Jose, Kiwiintas and Philthomas for your photos and interesting contributions to this thread - always so much to learn!
Can you clarify re the CM? The English dont have leg feathering but the French CM do, is that correct?
Also not wanting to hijack the thread re CM but you also mentioned some of yr other breeds.
Noticed you had a photo of yr Cream Legbar chicks Jose, interested to know how the parents look and what the egg colour is like? Have you been breeding them long?
I work mostly with a marans breed all varieties almost .
I m breeding them and restoring the type plus purifying them ( breeding a no marans trait out )
I m working with Marans Australia ( Terry Hill ) from Victoria .
we merge ours stock together ,so we can have a wider genes pool to work with .it is a 10 years project .start 2 ears ago .
all Cream Leg bar are from Terry Hill few different line. But I think most of them come from Cathy WA .
they are large chooks and a good layer of large Green or Blue eggs . I m working with just one rooster . big golden boy .
I ll start posting some of my work on the Cram legBar thread . have some nice chicks hatching at the moment .
I have some White aras ( I don t like them at all ) they are from Terry Hill as well . Gorgeous looking choos .just not my type .
I like a large chooks .
