    Now if he was gold I would just "hey, it's a Manchurian...." But it's not...It's a Jumbo Brown for sure...but but...the face...it's ummm...black...

    Just thought I would share as I have no clue what happened in the gene pool this time [​IMG] Enjoy!

    Have not had any Jumbos come up with the mask, only my Manchurians. He is pretty though. [​IMG]

    I've not had any like that, but you know me, only hatch when the eggs don't sell [​IMG]

    He is very pretty. I have a little boy who has a darker face than normal but nothing that dark. I like it.[​IMG]

    I like the look!

    Selectively breed for it and come up with a catchy trade name that will be missused and applied to all kinds of other birds... I like masked bandits, or even better since these are jumbos, Dark Night; the later years.

    Quote:Who is making jokes about him, I think all have said he is great.

    I was making jokes about the plethora of trade names that exist in regards to animals like this that have many potencial colors and patterns.

    Well, I can't put him in with the Jumbo browns because the natural colors will be ruined...soo...looks like he will be in a new pen with a few ladies to see if the black face gets on the hens in the next generation....just a little fun [​IMG] I seriously thought he was a manchurian at first when moving birds around [​IMG]
