Please help, what would call this bird? the tail is dun with a bar
The intensity of the "yellow" would depend on the intensity of the bronze. To me the flights look diluted - typical dilute tortDilute wouldn't make the bronze turn so yellow though, would it? The flights don't look diluted to me either.
I was given this bird so I do not know if the down was short. Can tort come from almonds?
If it is a cock the hen/mother would be a dilute. A non-dilute hen will not produce dilute sons whether she is mated to a heterozygous dilute cock or a dilute cock. All the daughters from a dilute cock mated to a non-dilute hen will be dilute.and what if the bird in question is a cock?
Hi SREESHS, No one is hi-jacking this thread they are answering the question asked.The question is genetic and needs to be explained as to why its a Dilute Tort and not an ALMOND. I think that they have done a very good job of explaining this.If this bird was entered in a show as an Alomnd it would be disqualified,on the other hand if entered as a DILUTE TROT it would have a good chance of winning in that class. GEORGEWe should have a thread for pattern questions, one in which patterns can be discussed and members can post pictures for patterns.
What do say wolverine about hijacking this thread of yours ?
