Brown. From the pic it's hard to tell if it's a brown spread, or a very dark check brown.

Okay Adam. Good bless you for always responding... Are there possible suggestions on which color to pair this cock to have best possible squab colors? Attached are the squabs produced after pairing him with a blank hen.

The brown baby will be a hen, and if you pair the original cock to his brown daughter all young will be brown.

I am still amazed by how you could tell the brown one is a female.
I have followed some of your YouTube videos but still didn't understand how you do that. Mind to give a tip?

It is a sex linked mating. Due to the genetics the brown baby from this pair can only be a hen.

Hey Adam. The hen as u said here is grown up and all indicate its a hen. Can u point me to how one can tell when the squabs are born you can tell their sex at young age? Thank you

In this instance, it is due to the sex-linked brown.

Cocks need two copies to express it, and can pass the gene to both sexes. Hens can only have one copy (or none) and only pass it onto their sons.

The fact that you produced a brown baby without a brown hen means the baby MUST be a hen.
