    I have just gotten a really nice Brown Red Hen in a bunch of give to me chickens. What can I get from her? I have OEGB: BBRs, SDWs, and Blks Roo's. Anything I can do with this?

    Quote:Mike,
    I should have a Brown red cockrell, come by sometime and we will get you set right. Do me a favor e-mail or post a Pic of her so I know a little more about the bird. I am interested in seeing body size, type, hackle color, breast lacing, breast width, head structure, leg length, legs, feet, and feet bottoms.

    If you use her with the Blacks, you will introduce red hackles to them and will fight it for quite some time, The BB red will mess up a great deal as will the SDW.

    Quote:Arent Brown Red OEG gold(s+/s+)wild type birds based on Er? arent BB Red OEG gold Wild Type birds? unless they carry Mahogany I see no reason for phemelanin enhancing effect..

    Below boy is a Er based Game, but seems he was split for brown(eb) and had some pheomelanin enhancers as he is darker than normal looking Er based birds.. what do you think could be enhancing it?

    Marvin,
    You are correct the BB Red OEG is e+ and s+/s+ where as teh Brown red is ER s+/s+
    The problems come in from the blacks that have been crossed into the duckwing, and teh duckwing pattern itself coming to the surface in some of the feathers. It can be worked through but continues to pop up for generations.
