    So my understanding is that dun works like blue as a black diluter that has a splash/khaki version, right?

    Now I've been looking for some bird that carry dun so I can start a dun, khaki, platinum, etc. EE/OE project. But the only LF ones I could find are black, dun and khaki Sumatra; and they look really dark(which is common with Sumatra?) so if I breed them to another breed of black bird would they get light and look more like chocolates?
