    Do I call them red crosses or roundhead crosses

    I have a slight dilemma , On my farm in mx I have been breeding some crosses and have found a couple that through results we will continue breeding my problem is what do I call them ?

    Example. Round head is brood cock
    Hen is claret / minor blue / warhorse


    I won't go into exact genealogy but I was telling my guys we should just call them round head crosses not go into specifics of crosses and make sure that buyers are aware not pure.... Thoughts?

    Yes I would call them RH crosses too! If buyer inquire specific then I'll tell them the breed the RH were crossed with

    I would also call them Roundhead crosses. Most buyers are still going to want to know how they are bred.

    Yeah that is what I was thinking... This way I am honest if individual wants more details then we will go there but for publication purposes Roundhead crosse they will be..... The truth is will probably just keep on using them .... We won a little show with them last week and they got down very well... Happy holidays to you guys as well......

    Re: Do I call them red crosses or roundhead crosses

    Yeah we are to the point where we have done really well @ some pits and competed super hard @ bigger shows and we are doing mex / USA in may and I have about 180 birds stags and cocks ... So I am getting ready to get on publications down there. And with crosses that we breed I figured I would ask fellow breeders ther opinions , The whole idea is to be honest as possible and let the birds do all the talking... some people will like some won't but I am confident that our installations are first class and the breeds we have our also ... So hopefully when I return we will have all that all set up .
