Dan P. & Big Medicine,
Again congratulations on your work. It is a pleasure to see such breeding especially today with current situation in our country. Anyway, a question as you were breeding your different varieties how many generations did you wait until you used or kept a male back to breed from? F1-F2 or so on. I ask as I am currently having my own breeding of a rare breed and variety and I made a cross and am in generation 3. I am not sure whether I should keep a male yet or keep breeding the male line pure in regard to taking the current pure sire( or uncle) back to his pullets and keep a cockeral back to the hens.
I appreciate your help.
