So here he is, absolutely stunning in my opinion, of course I’m a bit biased. He’s just a tapestry of reds—dark red on his covert feathers, cream flight feathers with a gradient to brown and black. Gold saddle feathers, silver and gold hackle feathers.
Does this have a name?
Cream light brown Colombian? Some kind of Duckwing going on?

Do you know his heritage? I think some genetics are just random. I've got some interesting birds from a Crele rooster x White hen that I have no idea what would be called because it's non-standard - she's not Crele or white but something just weird, but pretty.

Red silver duckwing/extended black heterozygote maybe?
Or maybe wheaten instead of duckwing because he shows more leakage than is usual.

He’s a landrace from Pohnpei Island called a Ponape, colors are random as no one was selecting for anything.
