    Of adults or chicks?



    Sadly far as I know there's no good site that shows all that.

    Ah, well, I guess the best thing to do is ask. Some sites, like the Ameraucana Breeders' Club, or Paul's Poultry, give a good example of certain colors though, but certainly not all.


    The best thing to do when it comes to shows is know the breeds and their colors that are accepted. If you have a Standard of Perfection book, it helps a lot. They have illustrations for nearly all the colors of all the recognized breeds. [​IMG] And an in depth description of how the color should look, too.

    A lot of people are seriously misguided by the color Partridge, that's a for sure thing.

    A few people are misguided by Chocolate.

    Too many people are misguided by what Brown-Red truly is.

    Have you tried www.feathersite.com? They have listings of breeds and their varieties under each breed category. There's not a list of all of the colors because it would be a huge list, but that site would be a good start. It's full of pictures.

    my seramas are all different colors with browns,chocolate,buffs,weaton and when I say I have a buff then someone tells me its something else like weaton. I see a red pyle and I my self see tans and think brown I guess. Its just me and the way I see colors I guess. Maybe im color blind?? Im on feather site looking now.
