Buff Coloration in Poultry 2008 By Danne Honour
http://www.aviculture-europe.nl/Buff-Coloration.pdf
Info collected from this book:
NOTE: Original done in four parts, part 1 1983, part 2 1984, part 3 1986,
and part 4 1990) All 4 parts combined firstly in 1990.
Many more articles in this 2008 edition. 268 articles total. Most
extensive collection of info on breeding buffs available.
(Karen: Danne Honour is the Dean of all things "Buff" in poultry. Widely reknowned for
his expertise in the color, he has been breeding his highly regarded Buff Leghorns for
30+ years. Mr. Honour's uncle's uncle was the veteran poultryman and judge, W.H. Card.
In 1919 , Judge Card  wrote an excellent book on Breeding Laws in standard fowl which
can be read online at:  http://www.archive.org/details/cu31924003158312
Judge Card also wrote an article on the true color of Buff which is on pages 62 thru 67
of Danne Honours "Buff Coloration" book. Judge Card passed away in 1922.)''

Re: URL's to genetics lit probably useful in breeding EO's.

Holy, you've done some researching!
Understanding the genetics of the marraduna EO is one of my winter goals.

3riverchick Would you be knowledgable enough to list the gene combination or are you in the learning phase all be it a couple light years ahead of me?

Re: URL's to genetics lit probably useful in breeding EO's.

I know, I can't take it all in.  :jumping:  I think it'll be when the snow flies by the time I get time :banginghead: I am thinking of scouring Ebay for reasonably priced chicken breeding books as I need a better grounding, that is the goal this winter. 

I don't want to tie myself in knots with these, I do just enjoy them for themselves too, but it is smart to read and learn and save years from easily avoided breeding mistakes.  Thanks for researching and posting 3rivers.

Well one thing I like about EO's and the folk who surround them. They're all fun. These are reference links. They don't need to be memorized to breed EO's. Just there for any instance one might want to check them out for some reason. Tho I admit the ones by Campo are fascinating. He did so much work with Alvarez and Orozco on Spanish and Basque poultry. 
   I agree, too much head knowledge makes a mentally "dry" breeder. Inspiration is such a part of this. Inutition.  In one of these links the Basque Hen Breeders Assoc. is relating the history of the refining of the EO varieties by the Spanish goverment. They discuss starting with the small gene pool and state they bred by assortative mating i.e.  "mating of individuals having more traits in common than likely in random mating mating",. Then, several years later, started to select for productive and type virtues.  They felt this would naturally stablize the amount of inbreeding occuring. They seem to have done what we are doing. Breeding like to like in order to increase a population of similar breed type. It's funny in a way. After all this research to try and make sure I was absolutely starting in EO i the very best fashion, I've come full circle and found out Claire and James are right. At this point in time, it's all about wisely increasing numbers.  And the breeding plans can come a bit later when there are more wisely produced numbers of EO? Here's the Englsh translation (from the Spanish) of the part of the article I'm thinking about . I thnk that's what they're saying, isn't it?
    "During the first three years of the program said it proceeded, in addition to the genesis of a data bank with respect to non-existent productive and reproductive characters, the morphological uniformización of animals, including black and silver and also the varieties lepasoila defining the variety.
    Similarly, within the process of selection indexes were applied to annual renewal based on very simple type of quantitative characters.
   From the fourth year took place on the lines of differentiation: ..(in other words, breeding got a lot more specific for traits and virtues. )."
Best Regards,
Karen                          :EO:

==================
Nope, sorry, can't help, still learning.  From reading the articles, Campo says all the Basque chicken breeds he worked with were on a golden base. Later he says the gold-based Basque chickens  seem to be an eWh base.  He also talks about gold-based basque chciken with white in their necks wings and tails. I read somewhere, I can't find it again :banginghead:  about 3 white feathers in a gold-based Basque cocks tail. I wish I could find the reference, because I don't remember the details.
Best,
Karen

It can be figured out Karen, it will just take time and some research. I know white in the tail feathers and I believe the wing feathers (where they are supposed to be black) is a disqualification for the breed. But lots of Roos have white in the tail. One of my young ones looks to have white in the wing too. I will need to buy a subscription to the journal of heredity where lots of these papers are published it seems, can't view them right now. Unless I can find a free source.

Spend hours looking for  free sources. Every once and a while, I stumble on oen and post it. I think my best bet is            going to get a libraray card from the local university nd using their libraray. I found one about and hour from here that carries Poultry Science. What I alsow ant is a series of Bristish Poultry Science for which Carefoot wrote!

Re: URL's to genetics lit probably useful in breeding EO's.

I've got about half and half with males carrying white in the tail feathers. I've got one absolutely perfect male with perfect yellow shanks and beak, nice color pattern showing Gorria in there. And no white tail feathers with perfect creling in the body and tail. Just blows my mind how fast these males have grown out. If I wasn't wanting to preserve them all Id be coating them with seven herbs and spices with a nice crispy crust. :eat:

Hi Calire,
There are bits and pieces in all thse URL's I posted. Sometimes a paragraph, sometimes a word or phrase. They just need to be all put together.
   I read you wanted to start a genetics study group. Great idea.  I have an idea too for later on, if you're interested. Or not, smile. Something  we did years ago on  a canine list. It was a yahoogrooups list. ACE could work too. We made a 1-2 day date. Then invited an expert in on a subject. Had a 1-2 day online symposium on that subject.  The moderators moderated all the questions only to make sure the symposium stayed on topic. The guests visited the list several times a day and answered the submitted questions. Since it was all done with a set-up which archived the Q&A, it became a permanent learning tool. I was thinking once everyone's eggs got hatched and their chicks got to juvenile plumage,           maybe we could do something like that and invite someone from Spain.  Campo or Orozco or Lys, or maybe some officals of the Basque Hen Breeders Assoc. for symposiums on timely topics. It's been my experience that these eminent researchers love to talk about their work. I'm sure we must have someone in the EO community who is fluent in both Englsih and Spanish to translate questions, if need be.  I think Mr. Campo speaks english? Just a thought.  Karen
