    Red barred (not crele, literally, red barred. Have seen a drawing, but never an actual bird.)

    Bronze (not even sure if it is even the correct name, have seen it on only ONE breed.. The Asil. And not commonly.

    Chocolate is pretty rare, though becoming more popular. As well as lemon cuckoo and such I believe.

    All I can think of at the moment, but I am sure there are probably a lot more.

    My pics posted but not my print.The short of what I had I had written, was that a pattern is usually alot harder to breed than a color. By the way, Nice silver pattern Illia!

    I think blue laced red is only seen in Wyandottes. You are probably referring to recognized varieties since there can be endless combinations of colors and patterns on any one particular chicken that can be totally unique to that chicken.
