Hi Johanna :)

The first is a dark check, and the bronzing is likely caused by "toy stencil", but it could also be a few other things.
The second is a colour I've seen before, but as far as I know it hasn't been studied or named yet. It seems to only happen on pied pigeons though, so there must be some kind of link there.
