    Wondering if there are any recessive chocolate poultry here in the US... recognized/standard color or not. ...bantam or standard?

    ... not dun chocolate but recessive chocolate.

    thanks..[​IMG]

    There is some chocolate wyndotte bantams offered by Sandhill Preservation. These are the only chocolates I know of.

    I'm pretty sure the chocolate wyandottes in the US are dun-based, although you should contact them to ask. I am pretty sure that there are choc seramas and dutch.

    You can ask, but most people working with rare colours don't sell eggs. You might have better luck asking to purchase birds.

    I would check with Jerry Schneidecker (I may have spelled that wrong) of the Serama Council of North America.

    Sandhill's are dun-based.

    I have heard that some of Jerry's are dun and some are the sex link chocolate. I have a chocolate pullet from him. I haven't bred her yet to know for sure if she is dun or choc. Here is a pic. I don't think he has any full chocolate birds right now. Maybe in the spring though?
