don't think so Andoy, both her parents are golden. They've produced 5 this colour the rest have been normal gold with dark speckles & flecking.

oh I couldn't tell you, as they were hatched at different times Andoy. And when I say same parents, what I meant was parent group of 2 Jumbo Gold males with 5 jumbo gold girls. The group produced golds, whites with gold spots & the light golds, before adding them into a mixed colour pen.

Hi Suz,

Yes I've seen this type before, I call it a "red golden" just to indentify it from other, not sure how they breed either.

The three chicks I got now have light brown spots insead of the normal black spots very different between the two colourwise, so it'll going to be intresting to see what they turn out as adults.

I'll have to get a better camera, that cheap one from asda, it's worse than a home made pin hole camera,lol.

Derek.

I'd suggest it's a recessive trait. Possibly sex linked if you only have hens of this colour from standard golden colour parents.

You could always experiment to find out.

Try breeding them with normals and standard golds (keep the chicks separate from the 2 groups at hatch to see if there is any difference). I suspect you won't get any "red golden" from either group (just normal and standard gold). However the 2nd generation chicks will all be carriers (if it's recessive) and all males will be carriers (if it's sex linked).

That's interesting Dave. So that would suggest the colour is derived from combining Gold and Fawn. It also rules out sex linkage on the X-chromosome. Has anyone seen any hens in this colour?

Interesting that you didn't get any standard Gold or Normal colour offspring and 3/4 Fawn. That would suggest that your cock and hen/s have Fawn in their genetic makeup. I wonder if (light)Gold or "red Gold" only expresses when a bird is homozygote (carries 2 copies) of Fawn and/or Gold.

The results of the cross with normals would be very interesting if you can identify which parent produced which chick.
