Pumpkin Hulsey Color Genetics? - Page 7
have you seen a cream Red quill? I have not..! this means no ig cream in them, because even if ig is recessive, it still is bound by the genetic rules of segregation
So, what is going on with the Pumpkin Hulseys in the tail? This rusty orange to bronze color is a diluted black rather than a true red such as the light brown/red of the red jungle fowl hackles/?
Even though my original objective was replicating the Pumpkin Hulsey in an American Game Bantam, I've really taken to the Red Quills and, since they've been accepted in OEGBs, there's actually a shot at getting them accepted as an AGB at some point. Pumpkin Hulseys, on the other hand, are so heterogenus, with all of these various dilution genes that are apparently at work in the Pumpkin Hulseys, how could you ever nail that down?
But the part I'm interested in really is the bronze tail. It seems to show up occasionally in the Red Quills, but it almost seems as if it's the saddle color accidentally gets pulled into the tail.
Interestingly, I was reading my ABA standard and bronze in the tail is considered a fault. I guess there are always exceptions for specific varieties of specific breeds. If I could, I'd really like to get a reliably bronze tail in my lines.
the colored tails are due to unknown tail restrictors(or the combination of many restrictors like Co,Db,Mh and Di working together) its not diluted black
