    Edit..

    Now with that in mind there are 2 ways of creating a Chocolate colored chicken... the easiste and most commun way is using Dominant Heterozygous Dunn...

    I thought polish were one of the very few breeds that actually carried the Chocolate gene.

    There Dunn,

    ''Chocolate'' X ''Chocolate'' = Black, Khaki, "Chocolate"
    ''Chocolate'' X Black = Black & ''Chocolate''
    ''Chocolate'' X Khaki = ''Chocolate'' & Khaki
    Khaki X Black = ''Chocolate''
    Khaki X Khaki = Khaki

    I have worked with dun before, it breeds real similiar to blue. A solid dun bird imo is one fo the purtiest I Have seen.
