What color am I ?
Not sure if my pullets considered Blue or Dun ?
Needing some input.
If thats a bantam shamo, its a dun. I hatched a few this year, still have the stag.
Dun - It isn't rare in gamefowl. Brazilians have it, Hulseys have it, some Thais have it, . . .
For a solid dun she looks pretty light. Dun is easily a very dark color in one dose.
Dun on wheaten base can be lighter though (melanized wheaten?)
Quote:I have only seen a few solid duns, but this is one I believe. I know the bloodline and breeder responsible for these birds, I hatched out several this year that were identical to this pullet. I dont know exactly what is there, but the ones that came solid dun were this shade, I also have a few that are dun barred, that are VERY light dun. I dont know why they are so much lighter. Here are a couple of them. The dun stags daddy is identical in color to the light dun barred you see here. The light dun barred were produced by a dark dun barred cockbird put over several black hens.
Here is the dun stag when he was younger.
Here is a pullet I raised this year, her conformation is all out of whack as she pulled her leg out of joint, and it healed back funny. She was lookin good before that. She has gotten more red color, and more mottling, I need to take new pics of her.
Here ya go Josh, another few birds carrying dun. The same birds I posted above.
I will be takeing her to.a black.cock.bird.this.year.too see if I.can get more dun.
Then once that's.done I might take her to.wheaton to see what happens.
