    Your Lavender, Dun, White, and Blue can offer you a very wide selection of options in colors to create from the rest of the list. . .

    Isabel colored Duckwing, Dun Cuckoo, Dun and Khaki Duckwing, Red Pyle, Isabel Birchen, Dun Birchen/brown-red, Blue Copper, Splash Copper, Blue and Splash Cuckoo, Crele, Isabel-Crele, Dun Crele, I could go on. . .

    Curious, you listed BBR separate from all your duckwing related colors. You do know that BBR is simply duckwing with both gold alleles, yes? Are you referring to Wheaten? I believe some breeders or even breeds consider Wheaten as BBR too. [​IMG]

    If so there's also Lavener Wheaten, Dun and Khaki Wheaten, Silver Wheaten, Blue and Splash Wheaten, White Wheaten, . . .

    What is isabel? Do you have pics? I am definetly getting the dun, and probably some BBS and i really wanted the lav and lav cuckoo but i dont know if there will be any available, and i wanted the blue gold duckwing and maybe the silver and dun silver duckwing but i also wanted the blue silver duckwing [​IMG] How many of each color do you think i would need to start my own flocks and sell some later? For the BBS i am talking about sumatras so i really dont want to keep the black in with blue and splash right? cuz wont the blue and splash make the green sheen on the black go away when breed to blacks? And could i possibly keep the silver, blue silver and dun silver duckwing together and still get silver, blue sillver and dun silver duckwing offspring? UGH! i am so excited but so confused on what to get!

    You could make some dun breasted red = gold dun duckwing

    One step further you could make khaki version of those.

    You could also make the dun+blue=platinum version. These would throw black, dun, blue and platinum again when mated to black version. platinum to platinum would also throw good red pyle mimics on top of that!
    Plus you could make the platinums in one year.

    I was thinking about making platinum sumatras but do you think platinum would look good in phoenixes

    Quote:Are Platinums Homo. for both Dun and Blue, Het for Dun and Blue, Het or one and Homo for the other, or does it even matter as long as they carry a least one copy of both ?

    one of each, else too light (comparable to red pyle). That's why you can make them in one generation.
