If that;s your preference then this will work great...
I'm only saying this because it seems to me the Aloha ideal is a lighter buff bird with mottles instead of darker red... am I wrong?
I just meant they are a handful. Not really aggressive.
This helps - Mouse is the lightest of the red boys I have, so he would indeed be better, I suppose.
(I looked up the chicken genetics. Read almost all the way through, Got one heck of a headache. I guess I need to read it multiple times...)

Edit to add: Do you mean that the SS have Mahogany (red enhancer)?
