    I purchased a trio of CPQ yesterday, and I'm not entirely sure what colour they are so I will post pictures before the end of the day. xD

    I'm having quite a lot of trouble finding information on the various colours available in CPQ, with examples of what they actually look like, and having an even harder time figuring out the genetics for them. I'm aware that Silver is, apparently, the most common recessive colour, but I'm not sure how it is, and I've also seen it said that silver x silver is lethal, which I'd appreciate some conformation on.

    Thanks to anyone that can help!
