    So if the way to get a Tux is to breed A Tibetan with a white, then what will happen if you did Tuxedo to Tuxedo? Since Tux is partial dominate, does that mean some will be Tux, some will be Tibetan and some White?

    The white spots sometimes get smaller but in my experience with either first or second generation tuxedos, breeding them together will only result in tuxedos (i've never played with any third/fourth gen birds). SOMETIMES, RARELY you will get a solid colored bird, but I believe those birds will still produce tuxedo offspring. When doing this with rosetta tux's they can be gotten to almost no white except a small splash under the chin.

    Ohhhhh! Thanks for the reply! I have tuxedo chicks that hatched and I love them! I'd like to breed more assuming I've got males and females.

    The genetics of these birds is sure fun to play around with. Loving my chicks!
