- Cream/Lt Brown
Fred Sanders and Fancy Chick lines.
The Isabel is actually in the crele family only diluted to lavender. Crele being cuckoo over partridge, as Isabel is lavender cuckoo over partridge. The barring gene is useful in creating an autosexing breed as well as new colorations, such as crele or other cuckoo colors. Pullets identifiable at hatch can be produced by breeding a solid male to you cuckoo pullets. All males produced from this cross will be single barred males (having a white dot on their heads at hatch) and all females will be solid (no white dot on their heads) You can take a single barred rooster and breed it to a lavender hen to get Isabel Cuckoo.
