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.

Bit hard to be definite on one pic . .

But bottom bird may be melanistic, going on the dark area in the undertail white and the overall appearance

Definitely 'different'

Agree with Arthur, there seems to be a bit of melanistic in the bird in the last pic. Is this the bird that got lighter every moult ?

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.

And the hint of pink on some of the others :silent:
