Well, i have an Almond Oriental Cock, mated to a Kite hen, and two Kite hens that are Aunts, to my set of new Squeeks. The young are a red and a Almond.
Is there a way to make a family of birds out of these with out Breeding too close? Dave

David, You know better than I !Put it on paper, connect the dot's. From what you have said, seem's like you need a cock or hen from a completly differant family to mesh it all together.

I think i want to keep the family as close as i can get away with, at least until i find a real good flying type. Then i will work two different lines, one for flying, and one for color/Show. and cross the show into the flying, Ect. Dave

All my orientals are from one pair. As long as they can pump them out and the performance is the same for each generation, I have no plans to change.

HELLO! Becege! I was wondering if you would give some input. I plan to keep the lines you gave me intact. They are BEAUTIFUL Birds.
I have a question, one of many no doubt. Are the reds you get Deroys, as they call them, with dark red Flecking? I might add some blood in a few years but NOT for a long time! THANK YOU again. Dave

All I realy know is homer's.But if I wanted to keep the "family" or some what of a winning type. I would breed the "winner" to his/her granson or grandaughter. I figured you have advanced enough to be close, but not far enough to loose all the the good attribute's.It's a chance thing. But that's what make's pigeon's fun.

Carl, i agree with you to a point. But after having breed for show and Performance, in many different type of creatures, knowledge can take a lot of the Luck out of it. Dave
