Looks blue with red leakage.
I like him though.
would you say he is Heterozygous for the Birchen allele (ER) instead of the Extended Black E allele?
It's really hard to tell on a NN.
I have a hen that I call birchen, although you cannot see the birchen on her neck. She is by a Iowa Blue Rooster that was birchen with the lacing on the breast likethe Iowa Blues. This hen has the lacing like I.B. hens do.
well here is the Shocking truth about his genetics... He is Birchen(ER) not Extended black at all or a Extended black that is missing some melanizers, the fact is, he is a Birchen with melanizers, thats why you dont see a golden colored saddle at all,
but He is Not golden either(S/s+) you know like when you mix a gold birche(Brown Red s+) with a Silver Birchen(S ER) he is a Gold Birchen(s+/s+) just like his great grand dad, but he has thi Pheomelanin Diluter: Autosomal dominant Dilute(Di) and possibly(very high chances) Autosomal Dominant Champagne blonde(Cb) pheomelanin diluter, you see his shoulders? I just dont see autosomal red at all but the pheomelanin combo(Di and Cb) may infact be restricting Autosomal Red on him
All I can say is that he'd look good in my Naked Neck run, with my Naked Neck hens.
