    Marvin,

    I have not read any research manuscripts or conducted any breeding experiments that would indicate that the brown allele and the wheaten allele act differently , with respect to black in the saddle hackles, when columbian restricted. I am not saying it does not but I can not answer with a yes.

    I haven´t either. BUT seeing how wildtype wheaten(all other genes wiltype except the e allele) look very devoided of eumelanin compared to wildtype eb brown(at least on the females as the males look very similar) I suspected this has something to do with the lack or pressence of saddle color. so I´m just guessing.

    I was thinking the hen would not be pure, and how knows what she could be!
    I hope it is a pullet!
    He does have a small comp with multiple rows, he is mostly the same color as a RIR, of course he has colors all over, one of his brothers was almost all white with red splash. He may not be full blood either, with his color I suspect he has a RIR (or similar) in his background. As for the BO I can only ID 2 chicks as his, both look just like him, and only him. This is a surprise as he was quite a busy guy!

    I have a few, from a random cross. I on ly know the pullet parents because of the lacing from the mom and the red from dad. I have a few that are red laced. Rather pretty. Males from this cross are not identifiable. Sorry.

    the Pattern gene(lacing) is an autosomal gene, so both gender obtain a copy of Pg. they would be Pg/pg+. males will be golden culumbian

    question for the experts.
    ok,apa sop says light sussex male hackle is black laced with white. english sop says white feather striped with black. there is no Pg in light sussex.
    so is this a color balancing difference?

    ========================
    ok, so if one has the apa sop hackle and wants the english sop hackle...does one focus on narrowing the black stripe...or widening the white edging. this is on a wheaten-based bird. how does one make the change show up in the female hackle?
    thanks,
    karen

    i have been trying for a long time to find the proper thread with folk in the know to answer these questions.
