  6. Quote:dont use the blue... I dont know why, I've just been told by the lavender pros that you DO NOT want to mix the self blue with the andalusian blue gene. Big NO NO apparently. Stick with the blacks.

    OK - thanks - even if she is almost a self blue color? She is more self blue looking than blue. Thanks for the info. [​IMG]

  8. Quote:Yes, even if she is almost a self blue color. she's still an andalusian blue (most probably). It has something to do with the mixing of the two genes that messes everything up.
