    Yeah Dun works just like Andalusian Blue. Just a little different shade. I have a pair of birds out of a Khaki Red Phoenix rooster and a Buff Ameraucana hen. They basically look like Ginger Reds, but you can see the Dun in the underfluff.

    Quote:I think blue to blue gives:
    25% splash
    50% blue
    25% black

    Although I am not sure how that relates to Dun other than they are very similar "Incomplete Dominants"

    Not sure if that helps any... [​IMG]

    All Incomplete Dominants work the same way I think.

    The double dun = khaki color is worthwile, unlike splash.
