Barbu d'Uccle question

Post by Chris Kurzfeld » 07 Jul 2012, 08:22

OK, please can someone in the know help me explain these to my sister. My sister has a trio of black Barbu d'anvers that I gave her - she has managed to hatch quite a few of their eggs and there are some pullets amongst them. She also has one Gold Millefluer Sabelpoot cockerel that she hatched last year. She is convinced that if she puts the Barbu d'Anver pullets in with the Sabelpoot cockerel then they will produce Barbu d'Uccles. I gave her David Scrivener's poultry breeds book and because it says in it that is how they came about she is convinced that that is what she will get. I don't know enough about the breeding and genetics to be able to explain it to her properly.

love me, love my 4 dogs, 3 cats, over 100 chickens (but don't tell OH) and 7 sheep - oops, almost forgot the 2 tanks of fish!

I live in my own little world but it's ok - they know me here!
