    Hi there, I am a beginner at chicken color genetics but I am wanting and willing to learn. So my question is. Is if I have a male and female brahma that are phenotypically dark brahma is there any possibility of buff if mated together? [​IMG]

    To my knowledge, a pure dark and a pure dark would only equal dark offspring.

    No. You will not get any color other than 'Dark', which is technically a silver partridge color.
    Silver is dominant over gold/red coloring.
