The "Red Bronze" looks somewhat like a typical bronze except they have a very overall reddish coloration, They do not have the typical black and white barred wings like in a normal bronze.They are a bronze based bird with a single recessive red modifying gene. Genotype: (b+b+Rr)
They are also known by a few other names like, Red Auburn,Light Bronze, "washed out" Bronze, Cinnamon and Bronze Red. Whatever you want to call them, they are basically a bronze with the addition of a single recessive red gene.
They do not breed completely true, 3 varieties are produced, Red Bronze,Bronze and Bourbon Red.
They may also carry some or all of the following genes.
(b1)Black winged bronze, (cg) Oregon Gray and (ng)Narragansett ,which will cause other varieties to pop out like tricolors, Regal Reds,Buffs, Golden Narragansetts and Red Palms .
I have bred most of these additional genes out of my line over the years.
The Red Bronze poult at hatch has the same typical stripped pattern as a bronze poult would except the normal black strips are replaced with reddish strips.
