You found some in Canada? That's great to hear! Gives me hope then that maybe the variety will someday become more available. Thanks for letting me know.

Could you use another color that would also result in Crele offspring?

How about a white polish?

Bred to a Crele you should get barred or white barred depending if the white in polish is dominant or recessive. The next year take those barred chicks back to the crele. In theory you should get crele and I will bet if you could find some REALLY good white polish you will improve your type as well.

honestly, I would not know the answer to this.

But here is a QUOTE from JUST STRUTTIN FARM's site...............

<<Here is the history Crele Polish as far as I understand it.  
Doug Kamer created this variety and named it Crele Polish which was accepted by the Polish club.  Unfortunately,  the general consensus is that this variety is not true crele.  To create true crele you need to cross a partridge bird with a barred bird, and since partridge does not exist in the Polish breed creating a true crele polish  is not possible.  

Some people really get their feathers ruffled when this variety is called Crele Polish, and rightfully so.  However,  this color variety is stunning and worth our attention.  

I decided that since the Polish Breed Club referred to this variety as Crele, than I should also refer to it as crele.   Unfortunately,  there was so much confusion and debate over using the crele name for a genetically non-crele variety that I found myself having to explain myself over and over.  Exhausted,  I decided to call my project Crele Laced Polish.  I  hoped changing the name to from Crele to Crele laced would  be enough to satisfy the critics.

Unfortunately,  the name crele laced  still caused some confusion so in  2013  I decided to exclude the word Crele completely from the name.  The vareity I am personally working on will be referred to as Orange Barred Laced Polish or OBL for short.>>  

And from another site explaining the barred gene:............

I would assume the white would be a good medium, but you may end up with more of a splash than a true crele (creole being the objective)???

Ohhhh....

Not real Crele.
What's the deal?

I'll share how I feel.

Could you show us some pictures? Maybe those with lots of color and genetic knowledge may be able to suggest a recognised color you could breed to and maintain if not improve what you have.
