I have seen both colors explained as dun + blue. What is going on?
Beige is sex linked Chocolate and Dun in the same bird..
Platinum Blue is, Blue(Bl/bl+) and Dun in the same bird..
How would sex linked chocolate and blue work into this scene? I'm new to chicken genetics so dont' shoot me. I was under the impression that blue (andalusian) and sex linked chocolate produce "mauve/platinum blue". Can you clarify this for me?
Chocolate + Blue = Mauve
Chocolate + Dun = Beige
Dun + Blue = Platinum Blue
Thanks Nicalandia! Your birds are beautiful! My plan is to breed mauve and beige silkied serama.
See crossed above. These colors will be very similar.
Sorry, I'm confused (but that's not unusual for me)...it's called just platinum, not platinum blue? Or blue and platinum blue are similar colors?
it is just "platinum".
Thank you for this clarification. I helps immensely for my feeble brain!
My next question: what is the genetics of the color in this bird's tail? I know it's hard to tell with seramas. This is not my bird.
