    I'm not quite sure what to class this little one as...

    Its 4 weeks old give or take? in person it looks very gray... i've compared it to my tibetan tux male:
    [​IMG] (excuse his fruffy feathers, hes due a new set)

    All my tibetans have a fair bit of red and other warm tones in them compared to that little guy. The rosettas are even more red and different.

    I'm sure time will make it easy, just seams an odd color, kind of like charcoal lol

    lol, I know that... tux is a pattern not a color... I have brown tux, jumbo tux, golden tux and rosetta& tibetan tux... his dark color is the color i'm trying to narrow down, it seams way gray/brown to be either rosetta or tibetan

    I don't know what color to call it...but I like the amount of white it is displaying.

    Quote:I agree fully, very sharp looking when standing on his own power lol.

    His pattern is a tux. I don't think hes a brown tux as he lacks those highlights and what not that normals/wilds/browns have. I'm fairly certain that i know who his dad is, and hes a wild/brown tux.

    It looks like a Tib Tux to me. They should have the charcoal look, the originals have it. The more mixed ones have more red to it.
