Thanks Chickenpox

and you're right Ruff, I'm fairly sure there's no blue at play there. I've never had any evidence of blue in my lines. Pattern genes, Silver, Mahogany, Melanisers and Dilutes but not Blue.

Here's a full sister to the Silver hen:

I know a lot of people like the Silvers, I prefer my original Dark, Wildfarbigs and would like to encourage those genes back out again. I think they're still there recessively lurking under all that Dilute and Silver.

This is as good a pic as I have of one of the original Dark stock: the head and neck of a cockerel showing Pg, Ml or Cha Blackening the hackle? And Mh darkening the red.

I have one lone Dark bird these days. A rooster from non Dark parents. Non of his offspring to the second generation have shared his colour.

This pic won't do him much justice but you can get a bit of an idea:

His father was a golden duckwing and his mother was this hen (colour?):

Hi,

I think these could be e+ wild type melanised Ml, Dark Dorkings are similar in colour.

I have bred similar colours before i got into purebred poultry.

Cheers

Sorry she's side on,
She's not a great Malay but she may be that dark colour being talked about?

Yes Birdienumnums,

That's the colour.

And from the historical evidence I've read I think this was the colour of most of the original Malay's introduced to the UK

I do not breed for colour, most of the time. I have seen it more commonly arise from both pile and black red cocks over clay to dark red hens in both Thai and Malay. Mostly are spurred in hen form, from the birds I have bred. Not saying it's the same for all )

Thanks all,

I've come to the conclusion that the colour in my birds appears to be a melanised e+ wildtype with mahogany

Cheers
