    Chick could easily carry the pattern allele (Pg) causing the barring on the breast. Base coloration appears extended black (E) which is at same locus as the wild-type (e^+). Proper red quill pattern to my knowledge needs (e^+) plus dark brown (Db). I do not know how the black base interacts with pattern in adult but I do recall a darker version of red quill that has much darker down at hatch.

    I do not know what sire side carries. Is it possible he is part Green Jungle Fowl? Comb coloration is outside what I expect for any games.

    Sire looks a lot like a brown red.

    the way the tips of his comb looks seems to me light/sun angle may be making for the odd coloring. Could be wrong though

    Comb looks very yellow, but I can see where sun angle could make for yellow look. Never seen white ear lobes on a darker game either, but I have seen only a fraction of the game strains and color patterns out there, especially those based on black and coming from Asia.

    yes it is the sun, his comb is regular red. I love the sun angle to be honest
