    These are just some of my random chickens that I really have no clue what color to call them, even remotely. Are any of them an actual color? [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    1 - Blue Spangled (like a spangled, but blue instead of black)

    2 - Something with duckwing in it

    3 - Wildtype / BBR

    4 - Blue-Red Columbian or Blue Breasted Red with Columbian

    5 - Golden or Silver Duckwing with melanizer?

    6 - Wildtype / BBR with possible dun gene and melinazer

    Thanks. I just noticed the first 4 pictures are all Key West chickens, which I guess makes sense that none of them are really a color.

    The last one, if a Serama, may be chocolate with a pattern. I have a couple of hens witha similar color, but not chocolate, that people have been calling Quail. I just call them Brown.
