    HI
    Ive done a few threads on thos before but i never really understood and the different genes ( recessive,Fatal etc...) and i was wondering if you guys could explain to me how to make different colours by cross breeding different colours
    for example... If you have a japanese quail how do you dilute it so the colours arent as bold????
    And how do you get a Texas a and m to have golden markings on its back??
    Or what colours you have experimented with and what new colours have you made ??

    Anything Feedback is valuable!!!

    Thanks

    you got goldens because silvers are golden based blues... ony have a 50% chance of passing on the blue gene, otherwise you get their base colour which is golden :)
