Look up the breed standard and that should tell you!
Thanks! After a few molts, her color is much better. Her bill, legs and feet are a perfect pink/flesh tone, no orange at all. Her eyes are bright blue. When viewed from above, her wings/shoulders form an almost perfect heart shape of dark grey feathers lightly edged in a cream color. She has a single lobe, and no white around her bill at all, minus a single small "tear drop" under her left eye. She weighs 13.6 pounds (as of her 1 year check up a little over a week ago-though she won't actually be a year old until April). The only "show standard" mark offs I can see (from what I can find on breed standards) would be the single dark feather that comes in with every molt on her right wing, and a few scattered dark feathers in her tail? But again, I'm far from an expert!
If you get a chance, I have a bazillion pictures of her (past and present) on her FB page. Just look up Even More, the profile pic is even her if it helps!
As for breeding, I am thinking a buff male and another grey female. If I'm thinking right genetics wise, the buff is sex linked recessive so I'd get 100% grey females and 100% buff males who carry the grey gene? Is that right?
