    Or is it one of those that are just mostly non visual? Like for instance I've read that het recessive red can actually deepen the color somewhat. And in the ball python world the "clown" morph is generally considered non visual when het, but the pros can often see it visually because it actually...

    I want to get a black wing gimpel pair to produce a sex linked clutch. So if the male is gold phase (homozygous pale dilute) and the female is bronze (intense, or wild type phase on the dilution locus). Then all male offspring will be phenotype bronze phase (but het pale), and all females will...

    So I've sort of got an interesting breeding plan for this next year, I've found myself with extra damascenes as well as birmingham rollers. My plan this year is to breed an almond (a pure almond, I currently only have a spread almond cock) which should be fairly straight forward, I'm getting a...

    Last year I acquired two really pretty Portuguese Tumblers, I know when I sign them up for a show it's easy to just put "Tortoiseshell" on their coop tag, but I'd love to know more of the genetics behind these birds, because Finally they have produced a squab! I'm only curious because at the...

    So here's a big question: what breeds went into the creation of the modern racing pigeon?
  6. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    Hi all, I have a tumbler hen, it is a Tiger grizzle(I think) and has a blue tail with black bars and red wing shield markings also blue feathers on the head. I have paired her to a recessive red tiger grizzle cock and bred red and yellows tiger grizzle young. Could anyone tell me what she is...
  7. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    first post on here and hoping people may be able to assist. So I'm a 3rd generation fancier from my family. I would like to say I know quite a lot about the management, racing, rearing etc. of pigeons, especially for someone of my age (coming up for 18) but anyway this is sort of irrelevant for...
  8. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    I was just curious if anyone has ever cross-bred a lahore pigeon with a satinette? I have a black male lahore pigeon and I'm considering getting a satinette female in the future and hopefully they'll become mated. I'm not planning on breeding any lines, but I might let them raise a pair of...

  10. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    Hello, I'm new here (this is my first post). I am asking about the genetics of pied/splash (not grizzle). Is it a single gene? polygenetic? Does it breed fairly true (two pied birds will probably get you babies with white feathers), is it often that you get a baby with white feathers out two...
  11. General Discussions
    (Pic from PigeonGenetics, discussion) Have a look at this crazy breed! Apparently they just grow like this, the neck isn't plucked at all. Pigeons... is there any form they can't take??
  12. General Discussions
    Does anyone know what I'd get out of this pairing? From what I know the male is a ash red bar and the female is a blue check dilute. Also is this pairing sex-linked?

    Where can I find information about the genetics of "Ribbon Tail"? Looked around the www but did not fine much. Help would be appreciated lots. Thanks, Jerry
  14. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    Hello everyone I was hoping someone could help me identify this color. The parents of this Satinette were both black lace and they produced this gray color female. When it was first hatched I noticed that it barely had any yellow fuzz almost none at all. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Can anyone please let me know which breeds have Whiteside (both black and Rec Red) in their standards? Thanks!
  16. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    Do we know what the genetics are behind saddle pigeons? Is there a special gene(s) responsible, or are these just carefully selected and culled pied pigeons?
  17. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    Ive heard of pigeons with blue, green, even purple eyes - but never seen them. Does anyone have any? Pictures even? Anything other than Orange, pearl and bull?
  18. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    I was wondering if you could help me with this Hen's color.
  19. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    Has anyone tried moving Ice into a breed that does not usually have the trait?
  20. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    Am I right in assuming that red magpie Komorner tumblers colored like this: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/386113368027856815/ are recessive red, most likely over blue spread/t-check? And what would be better to pair with a (Recessive?) Red cock, a yellow check hen, or a mottled brown bar hen...
