A question about the heritage requirements..does it mean that we can only call them heritage if we can trace their history like a pedigree, or that they have to be obtained through certain reputable sources that kept records of ownership traceable to original stock? What if someone outcrossed somewhere down the line? How much diversity is acceptable in the breedings results ie. Nonconformity to sop? I've always been a little confused about the first requirements.

Well,,,, just to let my little secret out, I think that MY SOP is the bestest because I bought it from Rico. I specifically bought the one with all his hand written notes in it. It was not the newest eddition he was selling, but it was the one with the most added value!

If one is trying to truly save the gentics specific to a breed then it is important to refrain as much as possible from outcrossing, and stick to the purebred line as it is not only the phenotyic traits that make up the bird, it is the genotypic traits that we dont see, the little hidden gems that suddenly make it important and offer the diversity of genetics that we are trying to save.

This is where recreating a breed does not actually "recreate" the breed. It creates something that LOOKS and maybe ACTS like the original breed, but the likelyhood of it actually having ALL the genes that made up the original is very low.

The genes that make it resistant (or suceptable) to a certain disease, able to utilize a certain resource, genes for longevity and production life, for good or bad, are with the original flock, especially with a landrace breed.

So, to me, a recreated breed is a replacement for the original, not a continuation of the original, and a breed created completely sepperately from another considered "identical" breed is a completley sepperate bered.

So there..... NYAH.

Rico's groupies, I like it. I was down Indianapolis at the big show a couple weekends ago and was recruiting some International groupies. I found some potentials. I always have judges stick hand, you never know when one is called upon to critique and wake up a chicken.

All joking aside the more information that I can pass on the better the for the hobby.

It's amazing what you can do with trick photography. You are pretty good adding all that stuff on me. I'm sending a copy of this to my lawyer,or maybe I better not because he may think I've lost it. I'm glad the people in the background are not laughing.

Shelby you better help me here or no more information coming your way. Agree with me that Silkies should DQ'd for been crossed with rabbits.

Good thing that isn't one of Piet's rabbits or that poor hen (rooster??!) would be crushed Exclamation Of course, one crushed chicken would be a lesser evil than twenty five foot tall mutant silkies!!
