    I have hatched out several Phoenix over the years. Both black breasted red and silver. For the first time I had one hatch pure white. Has anyone ever seen this? It does not appear that her color is changing with molt. [​IMG]

    That one is a white sport, it happens in lines if the genes match up.

    Don't worry I have Lav sports that came up that way, so its completely normal haha.

    Try breeding his parents back together and see if they do it again. If you really want to try start doing test breeding off possible carriers. Good luck my friend! [​IMG]
