Thank you bro.finchbreeder wrote:Because Aussie and european birds are bred completely isolated from each other. They are named completely differently. Their genetic material is many years of seperation apart, so the mutations that appear may or may not have the same mode of inheritance and colouration. But fawn and topaaz do look very similar.
I think you say that truth maybe over from shafttailTiaris wrote:I strongly suspect the pinkness at least partially originates from the fact that most of these mutations have been "transferred" over from Long-tailed mutations.
I have a finch that I think is a parson and has a black head and bib with a dark brown body.. The bib is not defined ... just all over the head and down the chest. I would attach a photo here but cant work out howE Orix wrote: ↑20 Apr 2016, 15:58 You can call that bird a modern day Chocolate Parson but it's nothing like the original Choc. Parson.
I call that a black/ brown where the older race was what I would call a red/ brown
They were called choc as they were several shades darker but no where near that colour
At least that is my opinion.
