I forgot to mention the white is result of the single copy dominant white laced red boy to gold laced pullet. The red is coming through slowly, So will be putting her and her sister to the best brother to get 2 copy Dom White "I" to see if that helps the red get richer. I will also put the gold lace boy (pictured) In order to improve the cockerel type, As We need to be rid of the stiff sickle tail feathers,

I wasn't sure what this meant?

you know because white is dominant you do not have to brother sister cross just keep crossing back to the pures each generation.

i just see a few battle spots on the faces of the boys....when i was there your cuckoo got through his fencing and had a brawl with every rooster he came across..just for me to see them all looking sorry for themselves :lol:

Yes I agree but with single copy you only get 50% that come out dom white, and murphy's law says that the really good one's come out gold laced. If I get some decent one's with two copies of "I" I will be able to put them with any laced bird and get 100% Dom white chicks albeit with single copy of "I" each.

thanks for that tim.

tim i was wandering your birds look oi beautiful, especially your buffs, blacks and mottles. is the cochin in the UK regarded as close to perfection or are they wanting in some areas? are there particular faults that is common in them? such things i am wandering about is the legs, the leg feathering, the stance. perhaps the head. i mean to me they all look great but looking through the PCGB photos even though the bars are in the way, i was wandering what are the faults, what were the exceptional birds and why? perhaps there was a judges report?

are you showing non standard colours, i see under one of the mottles "nonstandard M/F" do you cop as much s*** as we do if we show something non standard eg your laced and other projects?

There will be a judges report and I have asked Gillian if I can put it on the website. To a large extent the greater part of birds are close to the perfection standard, but with each hatch there are always things you would like to improve, but staying in the standard pathways. I have half decent blacks but am trying to get yellow legs like the black wyandotte rather than lizard.

There are only two shows in the calendar year that non standard colours can be shown, and those are the PCGB National and National Federation of Poultry Clubs Show. There is one class in each show. So yes they are very anti new non standard colours. Only the Mottled non standard are at a standard where I would show them anyway. I think next year the silver pencilled might be worth a go, to see what people think. I sent a trio over to county Tipperary to a lady called Jenny O'meara. She has shown them with great success so far.

The standard partridge/grouse I sent did well too.

Some nice birds Timbo from the belgium show. Interesting to see the different leg lengths as well as black in some of the buff tails. I dont feel so bad about some of our Aussie Cochins now. By the way your web site is awesome. Keep up the good work mate

You've some of your birds in our year book. We would love to get updates in word and picture for our future year books. Nina Morgan is now the secretary, but Elaine Oliver is the Yearbook editor, if you PM me I will give you her e-address, Send it to her and the whole article as you want will go into the year book.
The European buffs do have a deep orange with some black smuttiness in their tails, but you will have noticed they are a darker buff than the Brit ones are normally.

I can send you an e-copy of the book if you want to have a look?

With a name like Paul Rodgers, are you Free? Or do you keep Bad Company? :rofl: :rofl: :bolt:
