Do anyone know the genotype of this colour? Inquiring mind want to know... all sources I have seen seem to skip this.

Welcome to the coop. We were trying to discuss this colour in this thread:

In my opinion the e-locus is one of the eb-like ones(e^bc or e^s ) and definitely Pg. The cocks have often an extensive leakage of pheomelanin on the breast, so perhaps Mh and then diluted by Di??(hen is rather light gold). It's just only a speculation. Somebody just needs to outcross them to e+ and see what segregates. Otherwise you will be guessing to the end of time.

I too noted the equalized groundcolor on the hen and the breast color of the roo.

The difference with the quality of the gold pencilled wyandotte could the absence of the slow feathering gene. Just thinking aloud.
