Also, I don't think there are any "restrictions" on new varieties. But if you would come up with cuckoo plymouth rock, for example, the APA members wouldn't accept it. It isn't a real different breed.

Plus black rosecombs are the most common rosecomb, and black hamburgs are pretty common too.

Black hams are,nt rare but they just about all originate from one source. If you want fresh genetics you pretty much need to outcross to another color variety. hence my use of the birchen. I really thing the rosecombs are miniature hamburgs, which were in fact used for development in seabrights and many other rosecombed breeds.
