    Very nice! You meant to say dun though right? [​IMG]

    They are dun, but "sun" referred to the nuclear blast effect... [​IMG]
    I like to make pun.

    Oh [​IMG] I see now

    Speaking of dun, either of you two know any LF birds you're sure have the dun gene? My eyes are set on almost all Brazilian Gamefowl and that is it. I know I've seen some Buff Orps pass it, but not all, which has me curious. I've got an Ameraucana cockerel and I've seen quite a few Buff Leghorns with a sort of khaki color in the tail. . . Could it actually be khaki/dun I'm seeing? I hope so, honestly.

    I've been told that the off-colour on leghorns is a dominant white defect. What about polish? Pretty sure dun is in the largefowl as well as thebantams.

    I don't get it. The delaware topic approaches its 1000th page, but hardly any posters here... [​IMG]
    I guess it takes a lot of time to navigate through those leviathan topics. [​IMG]

    Me either--I really don't care for the huge long hundreds of pages long threads.

    So was the nucelar blast actually the sun, or a flash?
