Color

Her color is Ash Red with the Spread factor. Are you sure it is a hen? Most hens don't show the flecking of another color, and this hen is showing black flecking. I have heard of the flecking showing in some racing homer hens.

Spread is the gene that turns a blue pigeon black. Combined with Ash red it gives a wide variation in color. The light slivery color of this hen is usually only shown on birds that are bar or barless pattern. The other checks and t-patterns are more mahogany and dirty looking.

After looking over the pictures again. I have to ask was this hen bred out of almond stock?
