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.

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.

this is a picture of an original choc parson taken in 1982 from an article by the original breeder,you can see the red brown color in the original photo ,hope its shows on the computer.the breeder states some young birds of successive generations came out darker then the parents,so there was probably selective breeding which has been suggested to me by my source.

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.
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 how
