    I'm guessing game chickens--they have some unusual names, and no completely standard genotype that I can tell--look at the whole range of pumpkin.

    Mealy is Brown Red with the Gold (s) replaced with Silver (S) + Dark Brown (Db)
    Basically Silver Birchen + Dark Brown (Db)

    Elisabeth Duck has basically the same pattern as a Silver Apple Yard and was a sport color for crossing a Rouen and Mallard. From what I have seen and read on them they will also come Light and Dark just like the Silver Apple Yard.

    Quote:Really? I was told they were a strain of Harlequins (I guess it makes more sense that they are Aleutians (Gen. li/li, a common sport in grays) - They don't look like Harlequins, but they'd be about the same size with that heritage.) Where did you find info about them?
    Elisabeths don't seem to carry Restricted (exept the dark kind might).
