    That's cool (her colour changing) After consulting to a chicken calculator Pg/pg+ would give you a penciled buff. Ml/ml+ would give you quail, again not what you have. I don't know what she has in her

    I would say it is the columbian gene that is not clearing the black like it should.

    Built on the e+ locus which could explain the 2 back bars on the back,
    and the back stripe up the neck and skull of the chick?
    Best,
