    Is this the same as a Light Brown Leghorn? Or is a Light Brown Leghorn A light brown partridge?

    I don't know of "Creme Light Brown" or "Light Brown" but I do know that Brown Leghorns are simply a BBR / Gold Duckwing. I've honestly never heard of the others.

    Quote:They are the colors that Dutch bantams are called and there are Light Brown and Dark Brown Leghorns. But they are all Duckwing colors.

    So how would a person go about creating Cream Light Brown?

    You'd need to pick up a copy of the Di,or Cb gene or a double dose of the ig gene
    according the the Chicken calculator:
    http://kippenjungle.nl/kruising.html
    Where you find carriers of those genes I don't know
    dutch bantams and OEGB's that have some dutch in their background seem likely
    I'm speaking from research not experience so take it for what it's worth

    Quote:Walt,
    The color is not currently in OEGB but it is available in Dutch bantams even in the US. It is fairly common now that several breeders of Light brown Dutch have quit culling them and started breeding for the color. It will also result in a creme color to the hen, so will produce a true breeding "golden" but based on the ABA or APA standard this would be wrong. My theory is simple the color was not made to show the Silver Duckwing hens anyway so leave the hens at home,
