Nice pigeons, I think there are more chances that the offsprings will resemble their dad but can't tell until they molt

sounds good! hoping for some red, any chance for that? the dad has some red in him.... the female is by the way very young (born this year) so IŽm guessing sheŽll be even more beautiful next year.
U mean until the offsprings molt, right?

You'll get almonds and blues. Sorry, no reds, unless they are both carrying recessive red. Even though the male looks like he had red in him, he is still blue based almond.

almonds and blues sound great to me! by blue U mean blue barred like the female or "regular" blues as well?
guessing if I put one offspring with a red then IŽll get reds, right? since he/she carries the gene after the father?

to really know what you can get . you must find out the back ground of the birds color to reproduce a good colored almond the male needs to be mated to a recessive red bird . if it is a almond not faulting the bird but this is not a classic colored almond. to much white

about the "too much white"... I heard of somebody who suppose to be good in genetics that almond birds gets darker as the years goes buy. something about producing less and less white feathers.. anybody knows anything about that? maybe I should post this in a different topic, like genetics?)

anyway, another picture of my gorgeous guy......

unfortunately they set on 2 eggs but they didnŽt hatch, IŽm definitely triming them next time!

Yes, almonds get more flecking as they get older. I don't see why people care so much about having perfect ground color in almonds. I think they are all beautiful, light and dark.
