    I am pairing up and looking at a possible purchase that might pair with some of mine.
    A male bronze split to cream Modena pigeon with a female yellow Argent Gazzi???
    Silver dun?? Anything else?

    A blue mag male with a female bronze.

    Brown mags?? Anything else?

    Thanks anyone who can help me.
    I really want to get the silver creams that the male is split to.

    Good luck back yard buddy. My experience when it comes to genetics is go with your gut and let's see what happens when you do this.
    It is quite complicated with dominant and recessive genes and it makes my eye begin to twitch when I read or someone begins to explain it to me. I know members here have forgot more on this subject than I ever will know.
    Wish I could be of more help.

    I'm with Hokum Coco. Part of the problem is that frequently phenotype is obscuring genotype, and the hidden genes can be expressed in the offspring.
