None. :)

Pretty much, if you're looking for a positive return on breeding, you're looking in the wrong place. That said, any of the designer clowns will sell for more, but you'll have a higher initial investment. And usually a higher cull rate. Granted, you may be able to sell the culls for a lower rate, but they won't be in heavy demand.

Read the forums for the information you need on breeding. Pick up Frank Hoff's or Joyce Wilkerson's book and study it. You're a year or more off from selling your first batch, so use your time wisely.
