Colors for breeders

:layer:

Hello everyone!  First of all, please go to the photo contest winners at http://www.euskaloiloas.com/ and scroll down to the photo of the young lady with the Euskal Oiloa started chicks perching on her.  There are two cockerels.  I have one that looks like each.  I'm thinking I should breed the one on her shoulder, the darker one, but not the lighter one standing on the ground beside the young lady.   Now please look at the two pullets on the lady's lap.  The first, lighter colored one looks like both of mine, except mine may be just a wee bit darker.  I think they are OK to breed from.  The second pullet, the much darker one, is much darker than any I've ever hatched.  I think she is too dark.  Is she a Marraduna?  What do y'all think?  I'll post photos of my birds when my technology skills are up to it.  If someone could post photos of very good Marradunas it would be great.  URL's would work fine too.  Thanks, Patrick in Lexington Kentucky.

Re: Colors for breeders

The cockerel on her shoulder is much better but looks like he has too much grey in him, the one besides her might be a millie fleure colored EO.  The dark pullet on her lap is a Welsummer. 

for ideal color check out this thread http://forums.euskaloiloas.com/viewtopic.php?id=1978

Thanks Gubi!  My cockerel has less gray than that.  I thought the Welsummer pullet might be a gorria EO.  I appreciate your help.  Patrick in Lexington KY :thumbs:
