That’s because it is too variable and doesn’t even have a phenotype that people can agree on.
That's a mille fleur pattern
It’s easier to tell the genotype when you know what certain phenotypes need genetically to be expressed. With that knowledge and google you can learn quickly.
Yea, I can understand the high variability of a SWedish Flower Color and pattern, but I was wondering what effect it would have in crossing with something like a Black Copper Marans?
SFH are more of a landrace then a breed. There is no SOP and no set pattern for them.
They can come in a variety of patterns but all should have mottling.
Don’t expect mottling on F1 crosses.
Black birds with red leakage. Always.
Swedish Flowery Hens are
eb/eb, Co/Co, mo/mo, s+/s+ and Bl/Bl(for Plash, Bl/bl+ for blues and bl+/bl+ for the one showing black) and red enhanced(Mh/Mh)
They have about the most beautiful pattern known to chickens, The Splash Roosters resemble the Red Shoulder Yokohama in pattern(but RSY have different genetic make up)
eb/eb, Co/Co, mo/mo, s+/s+, Bl/Bl and red enhanced(probably mahogany)
eb/eb, Co/Co, mo/mo, s+/s+, Bl/bl+ and red enhanced(Mh/Mh probably mahogany)

Personally, I prefer the look of anything Red Laced Blue. SF pattern looks a mess, imo.
That is quite impressive.
