    Re: 2019 Breeding Season Thread

    When I got home from work there were 5 pipped and two that weren't, so I cut the two and opened a flap on a few to get a better. Looks like I've hit 4 ghosts but I'm not sure how many fires until they get out. Two look really promising though. More to come.

    Re: 2019 Breeding Season Thread

    They are all out and I am pretty happy with the results. Here's what I believe I've hit.

    2 Normal dbl het Pied/Ghost
    1 Fire dbl het Pied/Ghost
    1 Ghost het Pied
    3 Fire Ghost het Peid

    Once they shed I'll sex them but I figured they've earned a rest for now. I'll put up some shots once they've shed. Thanks for looking.

    Haha, you're hilarious, so modest! I bet you're 'pretty happy' hitting 3 out of 7 with the best possible outcome lmao Congrats man, that's a great clutch, I'm rooting for you to get the sexes you're looking to hit with those fire ghosts, really nice odds regardless of sexes.

    The three Fire Ghost have shed. I want to recheck them but I believe I have 2.1 for gender. One is very busy and one is very reduced and brighter, the other is sort of in between. The very busy one is male and the very reduced one is female. I have to recheck the third but my first pass is leaning toward male. Here are pics post shed.

    Very nice! That last one would be my pick, love the reduced pattern and brighter color. What are your plans for holdbacks? I think if the sexes work out, I'd keep 1.1, I can never have too many females but I hate the three year wait to grow them out so I love getting a male I can put in the rotation the next year, 1.1 is a win win lol.

    Ruf, you and I are in agreement. That is exactly what I am contemplating. Since the last one is female, it is a three year wait to put her back in a project so the male makes sense. The question is do I go with busy pattern or reduced pattern on the male. Both have their appeal depending on the what your working them into. Not quite Sophie's Choice but still a conundrum.
