    Hi there,

    I have decided to start a list of chicken colors. I can't find one anywhere, and I think it could be useful. Anyone can contribute, ask questions, etc. If you post a color, please post a picture of a chicken with that color. :)

    The list:


    White (rock)

    Barred (rock)

    Columbian (Or in brahmas, 'light' brahma.)

    Your brown is a buff

    For the chicken calculator I made 800+ pictures, still not covering all the possibilities.
