    I'm just wondering if anyone has the Dun gene going in a breeding pen of Silver Wheatens?

    I'm wondering because I ended up with an extra Silver Duckwing American Game Bantam cockerel and had hatched a wheaten pullet out of an egg that was supposed to be a Red Jungle Fowl. I was getting (one, I thought) Silver Duckwing cockerel to breed to a Fawn sport hen, but ended up with two.

    So, I've decided to use all four in the same breeding program. Based on my research, I should be able to get regular looking Fawn Silver Duckwing/Silver Duckwings on the male side and the females would be either Silver Wheaten or Fawn Silver Wheaten. I found some great photos of the Silver Wheatens (in Modern Game), but no photos of the Fawn Silver Wheaten females.

    So, if anyone has these, I'd love to see them.
