    I feel like greenfire farms is breeding them. . . I'm not sure if they're for sale yet.

    Quote:Greenfire hasn't gotten them imported yet.

    I don't think the silkies or the polish are real chocolate, I think they would be dun.

    The OP said "chocolate colour," not choc gene [​IMG] Yes, most of the chocolate birds in the US are dun-based. choc is here, but not common; I think it is mostly found in serama, although some folks may be breeding it into other breeds.

    I already have too many birds [​IMG] I'll take a more evenly coloured khaki polish, though [​IMG] and I can't believe I am saying this, but preferably a cock who is at least 2.
