What is this guy?

Was told this dude is a Pastave Champagne but I feel like there’s got to be something else going on here. Looks almost pied.

Going to be a bit until he’s up to weight to start breeding and then maybe I can find out for sure but I thought some of you might want to take a look.


Champagne is known to throw ringers a lot. When you add things like pastel, fire, and a few other genes it increases the chance for ringers. It isn’t pied, or genetic for that matter. Chances are none of his offspring will have ringers, or as much of a ringer as him. From the color, pastave champagne sounds about right.

There is also a off chance its het for pied or something. Het pied champagnes look like pieds. But like what @ashleyraeanne they do tend to throw ringers alot so yeah the guy you got him from is on point with the identification

As @ashleyraeanne said, Champaign is known to throw out “pied” ringers.

Here are a couple from Morphmarket, all of which are not pied.


It’s very common for champagne to have extreme ringer which in those cases have nothing to do with being het pied.

Wow, I’m glad you asked the question. I never knew Champagnes threw ringers or that it was common. That’s actually very interesting, and I wonder why they do :thinking:

Super interesting about the ringers. Thanks for the info, everyone!

This is my first experience with champagne so I had no idea they could have such extreme white areas. Planning on pairing him with my Pastave Trick female in 2020.

Another cool and yet weird thing is that champagne pieds are all white. At least from the ones I have seen
