My flock is presently made up of two color variants that are repressented roughly equally in the randomly mated population. First variant is black breasted red (BBR) with second at this time called ginger. In the past the population had two more color patterns; brown red and what may have been redquil. The "redquil" pattern is of particular interest. Redquil coloration was exhibited in birds most often with ginger siblings as I am guessing the other colorations covered it up. Two differences were noted between ginger and redquil, first with hens the redquil version was lighter and patterns on individual feathers formed a crescent moon shape, and redquil roosters while more similar to ginger brethern , although slightly lighter and had brown body coloration that extended well up into flight and sicle feathers of the tail. I would like to re-introduce redquil but need to make certain what I am calling ginger and redquil are in fact ginger and redquil. What I am calling ginger and redquil roosters. What I am calling ginger and redquil hens. In reality, my ginger hens look intermediate between ginger shown and redquil. Pictures are not of my birds but are reasonably close approximations.
