Lets do a poll.
It should be easy to do, but the question is a hard one because there are so many choices. The question is just on color, not wing type, spaldings, or paterns.
I wont put an ending date on this yet, it will be interesting to see how it develops. Please, everyone vote.
:wow

Whoops Embarassed You are correct. I was just following the varieties list from the newsletter.
Seems wrong to leave Black Shoulder out dosnt it?
But then I guess Id have to include all 185 ....and Im not typing all that. LOL
OK I'll remove black shoulder.

It was hard to choose just one color since I love so many of them. I especialy like the pied peas. And IB, cameo, oaten, BS. I reay can't think of a color I don't like. LOL

Sorry to be ignorant but I dont understand about black shoulder being a pattern? Does that mean they are really indian blue? That makes sense as I have one of each from 2 eggs that came from the same place.... Its really hard to vote but I will go and do it now!!!

baby sorry this didnt get answered sooner!

the India blue is considered to be the wild type or barred wing pattern.

Black shoulder is a pattern gene (or wing type) and not a color gene.... you can have the black shoulder gene in all the different color varities.... just like you can have the pied, silverpied and white eye gene... they are all paatters.

If you look at the UPA Approved Varities list you will see that color is listed first, followed by the pattern or patterns .... as in the Cameo...

Cameo
Cameo Black Shoulder
Cameo Black Shoulder Pied
Cameo Black Shoulder White-Eyed
Cameo Black Shoulder Pied White-Eyed
Cameo Black Shoulder Silver Pied

Cool poll. It IS a tough choice, though...and for me, I think my voting is slightly tainted by the birds I own and their personalities. Smile

. . . and I think it's also hard to choose if you don't own all the colors, as I know it's hard to imagine, for example, what a bronze peacock looks like with the sun hitting his feathers. Until I saw it, pictures simply didn't do it justice. But still, I like the poll! Thanks!
