    The color caluculator says, solid Blue that is split for mottled and split for lavender.

    Thanks!!!
    I am going to spend countless hours playing with that I am sure. Is there any way to enter a color you are looking to create, and it give you the preferred route of choices to use?

    Quote:I don't think the one I posted does, also keep in mind that it doesn't allow for or show the leakage that would be produced when crossing with Black and Blue breeds, it just lists it as solid color.

    Quote:I'm sure, with some understanding of genetics and some time, you could do something like that! If you play with the specific genes in the column, the color of the bird changes IF that change has an affect on the phoenotype. I'm going on there right now to try and help someone create red pyle seramas.
