One of the alleles many of my games possess causes bands to show on secondary flight feathers of adult females. Same allele in two doses causes males to be all mahogany except for tail (brown-breasted brown red). Until recently with the allele in current population also co-occurred with another non-wild-type allele (currently called “blanch”) that lightens overall body coloration from feathers to scales but as line-breeding progressed to a cock carrying pattern allele lacking the blanch allele I seeing a fair number of hens that have a double dose of the pattern allele on a wild-type background. Those females when displaying with wings to protect chicks display a ringed pattern that to my eye is quite striking and may make them more intimidating than wild-type as it makes them appear larger.
