Hi Spottedram,
Your question is a bit open ended and could be taken many ways, maybe a little more specifics in what it is you want to know.
The old books and colour standards of many OEG varieties are not what or how we describe some of them today.
The black breasted red we today call black red to describe the male, his female counterpart is either a partridge or a wheaten.
So the description of a black red male does then apply to many other breeds like Pit game, Australian game, Malay game, Modern game, Red Jungle fowl, Welsummers, brown Leghorns, all of these and more in both standard and bantam and either in hard feather or soft feather breeds.
Even colours in other soft feather breeds like partridge Wyandottes could be described as being a black red colour.
Many of these breeds have subtle differences in the description or specific requirements of colour shades and markings but are all basically the same genetic base with modifying genes or the addition or subtraction of other genes and genetic influences.

Hi Oaklands ... Its all very confusing ... I am looking for the basic e+ wild type .... does it exist in any soft feather breed ?
Some of the ones you mentioned I think are on an eb base ...
Only just starting to learn the basics ... long way to go ...
