So, it's my understanding that the Dun gene works similarly to the Blue gene, correct?

With Blue, you have Black, Blue and Splash.

With Dun, you have Black, Dun and Khaki.

Well what happens if you cross a Dun bird with a Blue bird?
I agree with Jeremy. This is true if the bird carries the genes for a self black bird (solid black) and the dun or blue is only diluting the black color. If the bird carries genes that would allow the bird to express black pigment mixed with red pigment; then you will get black/red, various shades of chocolate and blue/ red.
