Black copper rooster from the import Avgen line still 100% pure .giving to me by my best friend Fiona { she has great marans }as a 6 weeks old chick . he is clean legs type . ,he is lucking the red colour on his shoulders .his comb is too small .all this thing are not hard to fix .what he has as good stuff is more important . his black plumage and under fluff are truly black ,no parasitic white . he is 23 months old . I need this trait to clean other strains from the white on they tails . he is a big boy with long and wide body type .great tail angle ,a little longer but it ok .
we named him Blackgen . we will breed a solid black and solid Blue from him ,he will do well because his shoulders are black . the hens we need to breed him to have to have heavy legs feathering and lay dark eggs .these hens are Dark Angel { Dark blue hen} , Shiraz { solid black , Ravendale daughter} , Ravendarle { Black hen ,mother of all my black} he will breed these 3 hens first and then he will removed to another pen to cover 4 different hens .2 silver cuckoo and 2 solid Black. will hatch around 40 chicks from each pens .
Lot out crossing lines in this breeding program . I need large genes pool as foundation before I start line breeding . looking forward to work with him and see his chicks.

this guy is very special for my Red Marans project .he is Splash copper with added Columbian gene { I m not sure if it is a Co or Dark brow Db like Day Walker. mre test are needed in the future} plus he is split Wheaten . his genome will be some thing like this ER/Ewh. Co/co+{ or Db/db+, s+/s+. BI/BI. Pti1/Pti1. ID/ID etc..............
his sired by Enkio White tail buff{ he is Blue tail buff with added one copy of Dominant white gene} ,over Khabiba Splash hen very dark eggs layer . I need to add dark egg genes to a red line .
this pair produced very nice cockerels , few with Co genes others without it , just splash without red shoulder and chest .all chunky with great conformation .
gorgeous heads and combs both parents have a great heads and combs .

Splash pullets have begun laying. Here they are with a Wyandotte egg for comparison, although Wyandotte eggs range from off white, cream/beige to very light brown.
