Hello All,
Can anyone tell me which colours in Indian Runners are acceptable for showing in Australia?
Will buy the Poultry Standard soon, just getting my pens built at present ( fox proof this time!! :()
Cheers,
Kara

Thanks Danny.
Any Runner breeders/ exhibitors on the forum?
It seems to be as difficult to buy good Runners as it is Khaki Campbells ( had them 20 years ago)
Just out of curiosity, what is the usual way that new colours of any breed are accepted into the standard?
Thanks again.

Its take years to get a new one accepted and even longer for a new standard to come out, you will be old and grey long before the next standard comes out

You have to keep many generations of breeding records to show how they were developed and to show they breed true to that new colour

Trouble is it will take 20++++ years for the next APS so not worth worrying about
