    Black breasted red is close to the wild type chicken color~~(~~~partridge).The roos are black~green, red, orange and females have a brownish pattern to body and a salmon breast.[​IMG] Brown red is black and orange. Or is it supposed to be brown. The males and females have similar color in the body but the males have more orange. Well I have a picture of some brown reds.[​IMG]

    Yeah your boy has the Brown/red color pattern
    If you'll look at his wing triangle area (secondary flight feathers when folded up) you'll see his are black on a BBR(gold duck-wing or some call red duck-wing) the triangle will be red in this area. The brown/red is Birchen pattern(EB) the BBR is Gold-wing/wild-type pattern (e+). On the females the Brown reds are dark brown/black body plumage with gold leakage in the hackles (neck)area.
    The BBR female is a brownish/gray with stipling(litlle speckles of smuttiness) in the body plumage, salmon breasted and has gold/black striped hackles.

    He is a very pretty bird. I have a few picts of some bbred hens. BRB with the picts.

    Jersey Giant?[​IMG] not I just took some quick pictures of my bbreds and I am beginning to think your roo looks a lot like mine. It will be about one half hour for me to resize and post these pictures. The BBred roo has a black breast and the brown red has a pattern on his chest. Youll see. I wish it didnt take so long to resize. Well anyway BBack sometime today. :) These come from quality sources so they should have the proper colring

    Brown red bantam modern game roo, then bbred oeg bant roo then bbred hen. I have one more of the oegbbred in the house it shows the color better. That one really looks like yours..[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]This is the color of the hen. I had to lighten the picture to show her colors. Next post I will show the bbredoeg bantam roo. I had to take it inside so the true colors would show up.

    Brown red has crow wing patterning, and is birchen based; black breasted red (BBR) is duck wing patterned, and wild-type based. Wild type is usually not called partridge in the US; here that is typically reserved for Asiatic partidge based birds.

    Now I get it catdaddyfro and Sonoran Silkies. So does my oeg bantam roo have a duckwing pattern then? And my modern game have a crow wing pattern? I must say he does not like the washing machine so he is frowning. poor guy

    I doubt that bird is part Jersey Giant but a Black bird crossed with a Partridge/BB Red will produce Brown Red offspring.
