It's a cross Cochin Wyandotte that some in history say was the origin of the Brahma. With the Rose comb being dominant to the single comb, but some sports/mutations can look or turn into Pea/triple combs. The only gold and silver laced Brahma types are the ones we are working on as far as I am aware. Dick dastardly lives in Mansfield which is up your way, so it might be worth seeing if he wants a hand with them?

These are the parents of the SLB above, and they are straight from SL wyandotte X Cochin. So to my mind the people who believe this cross made the Brahma have got my vote.

Well it's helpfull if people are able to keep cock birds and breed from them, to have more than one line being kept by different people until they become more correct to breed standard and more popular, just incase something unfortunate befalls one lot of the breeding groups.

What pullets are you going to be getting?

Yes he will want you to keep them separate to ensure the chicks are pure breed that normal, As you get more experienced you can either get more groups of birds in separate pens. It's better to start with just the one breeding group then see how you go along. You can allways get in touch when you are ready to expand and we can see where we stand! :thumbright:

Thats mum at the back of the young Brown [chocolate] pullet. It makes me wonder what went into the making of Blue Silver as it obviously doesn't breed true.

These two are the sweetest ever Brahma's. To say they were raised by a broody, barely handled, they utterly adore being handled. The other day I was in the house filling feeders. The young cock, decided the only place for him to be was sat n my back!! :lol:

Sad thing for me though is I'm not keeping them, they are going to be rehomed in the new year. I shall miss them.

The reason I can't allow my heart to rule my head is that they are just not a colour I intend to continue breeding. For one thing the B/S just doesn't breed true, as can be seen by the result of these two. They would then take up pen & hut space that I could use for my others that I do breed. If you're interested, I have two dark hens for sale. They are mum & her sister, who before broodiness and chicks took over were inseparable. Pm me if you're interested, mum is as gentle and affectionate as the chicks.

This is one of the colours I intend breeding this year which I love.
