The light brown variety is the most popular color in Europe and in the U.S.  It is the variety
that has been worked on the most and birds in this variety usually come closest to the standard
of perfection for the breed, both in Europe and in the U.S.  But, as you see below, the
light brown
variety is also attractive.  In order to best breed blue light browns, you will need
good light browns too, as breeding a blue light brown to a blue light brown usually produces
splash color birds rather than either light brown or blue light brown birds.  But, breeding a blue
light brown to a light brown bird produces both blue light brown and light brown.

These are also two very attractive varieties.  The cream light brown variety was accepted by the
APA in 2003 as an approved exhibition variety.  At the huge Crossroads of America show in
Indianapolis in 2006, the ABA also accepted the cream light brown variety.  A qualifying meet for the
blue cream light brown variety was also held in Indianapolis and this beautiful variety was accepted
at that show by both the ABA and APA.  In the U.S. these two colors are only found in Dutch Bantams.
As in the light brown and blue light brown breeding situation, you need cream light browns in addition
to blue cream light browns in order to consistently produce the blue cream light brown color.  Blue
cream light brown dutch bred together produce splash birds that look similar to the blue light brown
splash version.
