Yeah, I was just using Ganus as a reference to commercial breeding - but in this case I was thinking along the lines of a commercial breeder of colors. But it's still interesting to hear people's experience with the racing performance of color birds.

Interestingly, our club's one-loft avg. speed series just wrapped up and a grizzle, down from Bandit, won the whole thing. A dark check WF splash took second. Blue bar third, a blue check was fourth and fifth, and a silver was sixth (I bought the silver at the auction - it's also down from Bandit). We had a lot of siver's (red bars) do well all through the races. They were short though - the longest was 200 miles.

And I agree with the white feather quality issue. My birds with white flights show their wear by the end of the season. I can't tell that it affects performance - just don't have enough data yet from my loft. But I will say my grizzles do best for me but it's probably because they have come from better birds.
