BB red?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

This may be the stupidest question every asked, so I hope someone patient is a member here.  Here goes ...

What does BBred mean in terms of colour?  I have seen it written in a number of different ways and I don't know if there is a difference.  For example, I've seen BB Red, BBred, BBRed, B B red, Bbred and so on.  Are there differences here, or does it all mean the same thing? 

Does it mean Brown/Red?  Is that referring to the wild type colour pattern? 

Thanks for any help.

No, it's all the same, it means Black Breasted Red, like a BB Red Game bantam.

Edit: Chris posted as I was typing. And he is completly right about the stupid question part too.

It is also sometimes called BBR smile  And no, it is not brown red.

Brown red is a crowwing pattern.  BBR is a duckwing pattern.  The difference in these is that in duckwing patterns males have a wing triangle that is a different colour than the main portion of the wing; crowwings do not.  Go to http://www.bantychicken.com/cgi-bin/OEGBCA/mods/usergallery/index.cgi and look at the photos of black breasted reds then look at those of brown reds.

BBR is e+ allele (wildtype); brown red is E^R allele (birchen)

Thanks very much everyone.  I can see that difference in the gallery pics very clearly.
