Don Burke exhibited these birds. Thought people might like to see. Note - I only took the pictures. Not my birds. There were two.

Personally, I thought they were pretty. Birds were a good shape, nice crest and muff, nice tight feathering.

Welllll ... personally I would have called them more "champagne" than anything else. Pink champagne, maybe. Sort of a pale reddy buff sort of colour. Salmon, maybe.

But, granted, and esp. on the one with the lav around neck hackles, wing and tail tips, it combined with the lav to produce a shade that tended more toward the salmony-pink spectrum than anything else.

The pics are pretty true to life, as best as I could, and the colours on the bird in the very first post do have a distinctly pink shade.

I would like to see these birds in daylight for the best effect.

Id like to see them in the flesh, but they do appear to be a pinkish colour. Pretty anyway!

Interesting, to my eyes they do look more of a salmon colour but i can see the pink tones. I have a diluted salmon ara hen - looks almost white with salmon tones, must take a photo in daylight. I liked the one with the lav neck.
One looked to be doing a Russell Crowe, foot up , get away paparazzi :rofl: .

I think that the term 'pink' refers more to the softening of the red gene colour - which shows as a rust/orange rather than a true primary red (which dilutes to a true 'pink') Hence the salmon colour.
They were really pretty in the flesh, especially close up and in good light.

There has been a bit of discussion in Araucana circles about his 'pink' birds. I think the consensus is is that they are actually what is called 'Isabel'.

Either way they are pretty birds and an interesting colour. :)

Thanks infoaddict. For my tuppence-worth I think calling them pink is stretching a long bow, but about as expected, and good on him for trying and getting the idea out there, with some promotion for Araucanas thrown in, great.

The big thing for me is the printed notice re blue eggs, that is so good, glad you included it. I would be more than upset if the trade-off for a vaguely new colour was loss of pure blue eggs.

Thanks for taking the photos Infoaddict.
I've been looking for someone who took photos since I heard they were at the show.
I think they're like my Isabels as well.
Good on you for taking the time for all of us. Much appreciated. :th
Eta - Just read the other thread.

A lot of people are saying it's just Isobel, but I think there are differences. I'd like some genetics people to chime in but my non-genetic take is that Isobel is a pearl-like creamy lavender colour - basically lav that's got a bit paler but isn't white - while the ones above are decidedly reddish/buff in colour.

However, I don't know the genetic basis of either, so it may be that Isobel is caused by red and pink/isobel are just names for the spectrum.
