yes a lot of so called fashionable breeds will be on sale with all exscuses behind them for selling Laughing makes you laugh as to what people are thinking as all these modern breed names have derived from yesteryear Wink I still think a good janssen will hold its own in any company up to 400 miles Very Happy

Beats me why people buy birds all the time. They probably have just as good.
Just a question of acing them and strict culling. For most anyway. No doubt a good cross will help with hybrid vigour if family is closed.
