When selecting a male for a female line. How much lacing should be in breast?


  • In my opinion it is all about balancing out the mating. You can have a lot or none. It is best to use a heavy laced bird of a bird that has very little to none. Even out of two minimal laced birds you will get some with it all the way to there legs. You get a variety in the offspring.

    Just focus on balancing out the lacing between the breeders. I consider the amount, but focus more on the uniformity and correctness of the lacing the bird has more than the amount. You want clean, crisp lacing now matter if they have 1/8 of an inch or 2 inches down the chest. You will also get different answers from different people. This is what works for me
