Breeding Buffs
« on: June 05, 2017, 12:20:21 PM »
I am reading the book "Buff Coloration in Poultry" right now. I wanted to pass it along to anyone that is breeding buffs or that is interested in learning more about the color. It has some good info in it.

Danne Honour's work with Buff color is well known. There are many different interpretations of how buff color is supposed to present, everything from Lemon to dark rich Gold.  There are a multitude of different conversations about the color covered in the document.  Definitely enough to help anyone in their effort to build a good buff family of birds.

I have begun my preliminary evaluation of the buffs I have Don. I have around 50 to sort through. If you don't mind, I may send you a few emails to get your assessment on some of them.

How are the buff grow-outs coming along this season?
Are you going to have some good show champs this year?
