In Reply to: Could we discuss the breeding of BLB posted by Deb on October 03, 19103 at 12:02:05:
One of the most interesting things I am seeing in the breeding of BLB's is the lack of the blue stripe in the hackle. I admit I have some BLB pullets that have very dark striping, if it is blue at all. Not at all the same color as the body. What I have finally seen ( in some recent acquisitions) is the correct color in the feathering of the female BLB's. Maybe someone could shed some light on why the males in BLB don't seem to have the tails of the LB's even when you have the right gene combinations. Does it have something to do with the blue gene as in the Blue variety of Dutch? Sure would like to hear pthers comments.
