Hiya guys! Sort of new to working with pieds and wondered if some more experianced breeders could help me out?
I have recently paid for an enchi pied female. I believe it enhances more pattern. (Might not be the case in every baby? If i’m right in thinking this?). What genes could I add to a enchi pied to reduce the pattern again?
Any other tips with pieds?
A few years down the line id like to add OD YB and maybe gene x.
If anyone has any other interesting combos and photos, feel free to add them
You may appreciate the piebald tag
And the Morphpedia article for Piebald.
Yes, you are correct about enchi, though I am unsure how to go about reducing the amount of pattern back down. I also have seen Leopard give pieds a whole lot of pattern as well and to my amateur eye, they look similarto enchi pieds in some circumstancesas well.
I love lighting pieds, suma pieds, high intensity OD pieds just off the top of my head. Pieds are one of my favorite morphs for sure!
Black Pastel, cinnamon, spider, and most of the BEL morphs reduce patterning and cause high white in pieds
If you mix a typical high pattern enchi with a pattern reducer is there a common predictable outcome for amount of pattern vs. amount of white? Like, are offspring that have a pattern reducing gene plus a pattern heavy gene more white, more patterned or is the outcome unpredictable? I suppose I can just answer my own question by looking on MM but I’m interested in the explanation behind it too.
Love leopard pieds the od pieds do it for me, I love the contrast in colours
For me to make those, ill need to make hets with one of my females so thats in the pipeline for this year x in the mean time im working with a few one gene pieds to start working our way up slowly.
Ooo interesting, black pastel and cinnamon would be awesome to play with but id need to get it in. I have lesser in alot of my males, my only concern is getting an all white pied. It would mean id have to keep it and breed it when older.
Also interested in this! Pied is abit confusing as the pattern rules that apply in non pieds aren’t the same in pieds. For instance calico i can imagine would be super hard to id in a low white pied. And pied does also mess with pattern and colours (in what ive seen so far). I suppose experiance and playing around with the projects, plus genetic testing would help to understand the patterns and help me understand how to ID multigene pieds in a few years time x
Im also wondering if genes like blade and genex would help the adults keep most of the sharp, vibrant colours they have as babies. Not in a position yet to test this but it’s definately on the bucket list for the future
