i have a almond pair to a blue check anybody have a clue what it might turn out to be

also i got a pair which the hen is solid black and the cock is white with light red spots any clue what this what the offspring look llike

These birds are rollers
Is the almond the cock or the hen? Almond cocks mated to normal hens can produce almonds of either sex. Almond hens mated to normal cocks will produce almond cocks and normal hens. This is just general info, there can be loads of variables. Classic almond is made up of the stipper gene, kite bronze, heterozygous recessive red and all on a t pattern blue base.

From the description of the other pair, you may have an ash red grizzle. If he is not split for blue, the young will all be ash red and possibly all grizzles. It depends on what he really is. If he happens to be split for blue, you could get blacks and blues as well.

Are there different classifications of Almond?
Good question....Dave
Are there different classifications of Almond?

If you're asking are there various alleles of almond and or various ways that almond expresses itself, then yes there are. I'm not going to go into all of them here, or even into some of them. Just check out http://www.angelfire.com/ga3/pigeongenetics/ALMONDALLELES.html for some of the more common ones. You might also like to read: http://www.angelfire.com/ga3/pigeongenetics/nonclassicalalmond.html and also http://www.angelfire.com/ga3/pigeongenetics/almondhist2.html

Great Information Frank, i think i will be visiting your website often... Dave
