I thought I better have a look to see if a brown/red is in the APS2, yes it's a pekin colour.. Well done you have a young brown/red pekin..

It's not Birchen, that's silver colour.. :peece


Would that mean this this little one is brown/red Pekin? I thought Birchen. The gold colour is fading and becoming more silver. Only new to pekin's so I have lots to learn.

some blacks will show a bit of red particularly in the hackle....a fault for showing , can be useful in the breeding pen as they tend to produce the best green sheen blacks .

That colour will have a hobbyist name but the genetics underpinning that would be Birchen with other melanisers.

Funny you say, I have two of these guys and both of them have a awesome Green sheen through their feathers and they are only 11 weeks old. Their feathers are growing out more each week, so it will be interesting to see what comes from it. Thank you.
