    what a fawn/dun barred chicken will look like as an adult.... we should have at least three in the batch that we just hatched out(they have light spots on the backs of their heads, and their faces are a nice, dark, ruddy brown)... I understand that, being mixes, their patterning/coloring might be a tad off, but I had just never seen a a barred bird that color, and was wondering what it looked like...

    GSC from The Classroom at the Coop forums is Working with Chocolate Barring(choc, but should look simmilar to het Dun) I´ll find pics and I´ll post them ok...

    Edit..GSC is working on Chocolate Cuckoo Marans

    Edit..

    Here is Her Awesome Work....(you can have something simmilar with Dun depending on extra melanizers)
