    Quote:Brown reds are based upon the birchen gene. The blacks, blues and splash may have birchen in them but I would not count on getting birchen out of them. It would involve experimental crossing to find out if they contained the birchen gene. You may have to get the brown red from an OEGB. White ear lobes would be a problem and you would have to select for that while you were breeding. Dutch have white ear lobes but I have never seen a brown red dutch.
