    If you don't breed color to color, you'll get mixed colors not accepted in the standard. If you're working towards creating a new color, or continuing a color (Tolbunt for example) you might need to use colors other than that same color. Then of course you have a lot of work ahead, in picking your keepers and the "culls"... In order to get to the color you want, and have it breed true. [​IMG]
