    Quote:That is based on variety.. Some patterns are nearly impossible to get right with only 1 breed pen for both sexes. Black, White, Self Blue, and other varieties where the male and female share the same color and color pattern can be single mated with no issues however Parti-colored varieties such as BB Red, Silver Duckwing, Wheaton, and the like are nearly impossible to have consistant showable males and females from one mating due to color issues.
