Just wanted to share a few photos of a opal donek male I picked up a couple weeks ago. I don't know if he performs yet, but have tracked down that he and possibly three others I have are from the son of Dr. Stone from Utah, who had done color breeding of Doneks some 30 years ago.
I'm knew to...
Where can I find more information on the toy stencil white bar phenotype?
I understand it to be a multi-factor phenotype in fancy pigeons.
Is dominant opal responsible for the white bars, what other factors are involved in producing a pigeon with solid coloured body with white bars?
G'day i've recently just purchased 2pr of Ice pigeon and was just wondering if toy stencil is the same as opal? lil unsure but opal takes place of back? The Ice pigeons' has the white bars (except the barless 1 :D) with pencil line black so does white bars just mean toy stencil? Also with...
I like looking at pretty birds on auction sites. Here's some I came across that I'd like to talk about.
First, these are described as a pair of 'rare colors'. The first bird pictured is the cockbird. To me, he looks like your typical lavender (ash-red spread). I see his red bars just barely, as...
Look at what I got. This is the most beautiful color pattern I got this year. All my breeders are Blue Check or Black T pattern. A couple young birds developed tanish feathers with out a strong pattern. Full tan feathers, odd balls grew out here and there.
This bird is much lighter and has...

Would anyone like to hazard guesses as to what the following birds are?
Looks like blue opal check to me (the breeder said she was rec opal)
(Front bird) Breeder called him **** indigo spread. But is he blue based? Could he be ash as well?
The reason I ask is that these two...
Browzing around and thought I'd share some colorful finds :) Genetics forum needs a wakeup, haha.
Dom. opal on recessive red? (Right? Or did this one not inherit the RR from the parents?)
I couldn't help but laugh at the name of...
I recently bought some new colours but am having trouble identifying the opals.
Here are some pictures.
The breeder tells me this is a recessive opal red-phase ... but it looks like a dominant opal to me.
The breeder tells me this is an ash-red dominant opal, but it looks like...
I just put up 41 pictures of rare colored homers I am using in my breeding program, this year, on my website.
So far, I have posted pictures of some of my andalusians, opals, almonds and saddles. I hope to get up pictures of most of my more unique breeders in the next couple of weeks.
