Chestnut Flanked White
HISTORY: In 1937 Mr Whitehouse of Brisbane caught 3 white hens with tear stripes and tail markings. Although he had success breeding with these hens it was many years before he produced cock birds with markings similar to the normal Grey. He named the mutation 'Marked White'. Mr Whitehouse's birds were the mutation which we now call Chestnut Flanked White .
* This mating is not recommended as it is visually impossible to detect which Greys are pure.
AVAILABILITY: Common; hens more so.
GENERAL: Recent breeding indicates that CFW and Marked White are the same mutation; CFW being of the lighter form.
