    Do you mean gold or buff? The three most common colors in the US are dark, lights and buffs.

    I'm looking for pictures of chicks with pattern gene & gold. Such as partridge wyandotte, or the brahma which has the same markings. Like the dark brahma but gold rather than silver.

    Ah! I just clued in. You're in the UK aren't you?
    Sorry, I only have darks, buffs and lights.

    Gritsar,
    I am British but more recently living in US. I'm afraid I know next to nothing about chickens here & keep using all the terms I knew back in Britain. They don't have gold brahmas here?
    I ought to remember what they look like at hatch but I seem to be forgetting a lot more than I'd ever have thought. [​IMG]
    Do you have any photos of your dark brahmas?
    Thanks

    Quote:Hi! Yep, I've seen some pics of other colors people have here in the states, mostly it's buff, darks and lights. I have all three. It's 12:30 AM here and my fiance is giving me looks and complaining about me being on "that chicken board" again [​IMG] so I'll post em later on today okay? [​IMG]

    Good morning! [​IMG]
    Here are the promised pictures. My dark brahma roo at 3 or 4 days old:

    The orange mark on his forehead is of course the hatchery's mark letting me know he's my baby roo. In the first pic, you can see the backside of another dark brahma. The chick in the feeder in the first pic is a light brahma.
