    I recently received this rooster as a gift from a friend and I fell in love with the color and I would like to know what genes would produce that color so than I can replicate it easier by choosing a chicken with matching genetics. I would like to say its the silver gene at work but I'm not sure.

    Ok the color coloring on the pheomelanin is due to the ig (inhibitor of gold) gene. Now what would be the genetics that produce his body color?
