    Originally all of my pigeons were black and white tiger grizzles. Nothing fancy. They'd produce dozens of babies always getting the same result-black and white tiger grizzles. Then one day I bought a recessive red cock who paired with one of my hens. They produced babies with a considerable...

    I want to improve the color quality of my recessive red racing homers. My cock is pretty decent with just a small amount of blue bleeding through. If I mate him to my spread blue/black hen and then mate the hen offspring back to him would this be one way of improving the color? My recessive red...

    in our area many breeders working on recessive red beauty homers. they call teh (full color recessive reds). some times spread may change pattern or body color. my question is ... How can I know it's recessive red from tail or other body marks and it is not ash or opals.

    I've been dying for some rr's so I can try to make yellows. I paired a set of birds that each had a rr parent. The first round yielded the bird you see in the pic, kind of dunn or yellow under tones, and a charcoal slate kind of bird. To my surprise the second round gave me two rr's, but one...

  11. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    There are only a few people in my area with RR homers and they are breeding them or racing, so I'm trying to make due with what I have, if possible. I have a slate cock and a slate hen, out of separate lines, that have the RR gene. What I mean by that is that at least one of their parents were...

    How do you tell the difference between recessive red and spread red? Similarly, how do you tell the difference between recessive yellow and spread yellow? Still trying to figure things out. I'm 61 years, so I figure I've only got 40 years more to understand this! I'm studying as fast as I...
  13. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    Hey everyone I was wondering something. Since the hen is homozygous tiger grizzle and the cock is recessive red, all kids from this pairing will be heterozygous tiger grizzle and carry the gene for recessive red. If I were to mate the kids together shouldn't they produce red tiger grizzles...

    I have a recessive red cock mated to a black hen and they have 2 babies together. So the babies are split for recessive red, right? and if I were to breed the babies together (not that I would) I would get red pigeons, right? Just trying to understand the genetics of it all
  15. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    Hey all, I have the following recessive red young bird in my loft. Its of a mating between a recessive red white flight/white tail cock, and a recessive red hen. I am sure the hen is blue based, a bit unsure about the cock, but my guess is blue based as well. The cock also carries the gene for...
  16. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    Hey guys, I have this black cock with white tail and white flights.. who mated to a red hen (recessive red) gave me one red baby and one blue one. I thought that maybe he had the recessive red gene and when combined with the recessive red gene from the hen it produced a red baby. Then I split...

    I read that recessive red "covers" (is epistatic to) a lot of mutations/effects. But what about the icy-effect?

  19. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    If I take birds listed as "silver" and "bronze" which were the result of rec. red and silver parents what can I expect from the offspring when mated with another rec. red? bb? specifically or others of note. Does it make a difference if whether the sire or dam was the silver or the Rec red of...
