    I was just curious if we had a compiled post that listed all common chicken colors and patterns? If not, let's make one! I myself struggle with what color is that or pattern is that. It would be extremely useful when ordering chicks this spring to have the desired colors right in front of you. Thanks

    There are way too many to name them all.

    I'm not saying all just the most common. Like we have the breeds section, just with colors and patterns

    Most hatchery catalogues or websites show colours/patterns as well as breed pictures.

    Take your numbers and multiply by like five or more to get how many colors there are.
