For anyone who is working with Orange Dreams coming from Paul Miles, especially those that are het pied, know they can throw some weird babies. If you haven’t already, check out some of Barry Swope’s animals he has been producing for some great examples, just put on some sunglasses before pulling up the pictures
This clutch was produced from an Orange Dream Yellowbelly possible Fire het pied poss het clown, what a mouthful, to a supposed het Pied that came from a friend. This is the second year that she hasn’t thrown any pieds, so for the sake of this discussion let’s operate under the assumption she is a normal or wild type.
Below are photos of the offspring post shed and a meal. Let me know your thoughts, I am a bit stumped. Also, one last note, I paired the male to a fire female this year, she hasn’t laid yet but I would expect some black eyed lucys based on what I am seeing out of this clutch.
