    I have read that to get tuxedos, you can breed whites and Tibetans/Rosetta Tibetans and get them in two generations, or tuxedo to tuxedo or tuxedo to white and get them in one. Does anyone else have experience with tuxedos that they would like to share? Or pictures?

    Yes, I am a sucker for birds in dinner jackets! Mine is tired of me following him around and making goo-goo eyes. He would like some new chicks to divert my attention. [​IMG]

    I think tuxedos are one of my favorite color variations aside from the rosetta tibetan [​IMG]

    If you breed tuxedo to tuxedo, you'll get a percentage of tuxedo chicks, tibetan chicks, and white chicks. Breeding tuxedo to white should result in all white or tuxedo chicks. When you breed white to tibetan you 'should' get tuxedos the first generation but they won't be marked very well. Breed those again to white to get better markings.

    Any british range to the white will produce a tux. I have been getting tuxes and whites come from mine but more so tuxes.
