    You could divide Barred and Cuckoo into a bunch of colors like Lavender Cuckoo, Blue Barred, Buff Barred.. Those are all I can think of. There is also Black Laced Red and Splash Laced Red, Paint, Salmon, Quail, Black Mottled, Blue Mottled, Wheaten, Blue Wheaten, Buff Columbian, Silver Spangled, Gold Spangled, Red Columbian, Lemon, Silver Pencilled, Gold Pencilled....

    The color pattern of the "Hoen van de Zwalmvallei" is the combination of campine/autosomal barring and cuckoo/sexlinked barring.
    Very pretty.

    Each pattern except solids can be made in 4 groundcolors (silver, cream, gold, red) combined with the patterncolors (black, blue, lavender, chocolate, khaki, platinum, splash/white).
    The combination of lavender and red is difficult because the lavender gene dilutes the red.

    Patterns:
    solid: black, blue, khaki, chocolate, lavender, buff, red, isabel, white
    birchen, silver sussex, gold/silver hackled
    wildtype, melanized wildtype like furnace and brassy back,
    flitter (leghorn)
    wheaten, salmon
    columbian, ginger, blacktail
    pencilled partridge
    double laced
    single laced, with and without laced tail
    spangled, "halfmoon spangled" (dutch: getoept)
    transverse pencilled = autosomal barring, wheatear pattern (Friesian)
    lakenvelder, vorwerk, quail, moorkop = blackhead

    all these can be mottled and/or barred
    mottled columbian would become millefleur
    mottled single laced would become jazz/tollbunt

    once also existed black whitetail japanese

    Serama colors like cocopop, coconut, butterscotch
