its not arguing martyn, its expressing an opinion......if you have done a perticular thing then youve every right to say so, if others have done things differently or bred certain colours then they too have a right to say......

each to their own, this is what a discussion forum is all about........ cheers

I think around 80 mate. He has no old birds on, just a few late breds so he's hoping to get a good team of yearlings out of this lot.

fook me gaz there a bit of variety there i like the [ied second in from the left in the last pic looks a smasher


the red in the last pic looks like what i would call a recessive red and the other one next to it as well but looks like it was another modifying gene there as well

i remember when i was about 10 i used to prey for mealies and grizzles off our old deans grizzle cock but they usually didn't last long Sad Sad

just need to alter what i said ray, ive a pair of janssen blue bars whoalways seem to breed a slatey every season, the rest are blue bars......

slate is dilute of blue so no red in it .

my father in law had a good pair of blues both at racing and breeding

then one year he got 2 reds in the nest from his pair of blues , he had no reds or mealys in the loft , he said my blues are breeding reds , no way i said he said well i aint got a red in the shed , yesi said but remember that 5yr old red welsh cock stray that was on your loft for a week 4 weeks back , oh dear he said it must have nicked the hens . lol theres usually an exsplanation somewhere .lol

True what you say Rudderfett/David "Re this topic" In all the years I have been involved & all the theorys/topic's one studies etc. This one has caused me the most problems in relation to understanding it. Right or wrong I just accept what ever comes out of the egg so to speak, is what it is. Strange colours/patterns accur many times for what I have seen, but at the end of the day it's the first pair of legs through the trap that really matters & I will leave those that wish to study this subject, to do their own thing & wish them all well. cheers

A blue barred pigeon can carry a recessive red gene so 2 blues bred together carrying this hidden  red gene can breed a red (a throwback) I have 2 birds that are predoninantly white one with a litle black (the hen) The cock carries the red gene I have bred from them Reds, Whites, white Griz, Blues and mealies.

So I believe you have a ressesive throwback and it will be interesting to see how the bird shapes up for you either good or Rubbish, lol.

here is a short viideo explaining Colour in Phenotype and Genotype genes

That may be the case I am no expert but I have bred all the colours of the rainbow from 2 predominately white Roland Janssen pigeons but it is still possible even if unlikely that a red can be bred from 2 blue bars

The Red bird in question could be the result of some new mutation. The first possibility or adulterous chance mating is very common in open lofts while the odds for the second, a mutation, is more unlikely  but still Possible. Below is a passage from Elimar "Gordon Chalmers"

Pigeons that are recessive red, with the typical red bodies, flight and tail feathers can be bred off some blue bars and blue checkers - witness the typical recessive reds in the Janssen-van den Bosch pigeons. Remember that the dam of the Oude van den Bosch, the progenitor cock of the Meulemans family, was a recessive red hen. This gene for recessive red has since been passed along to many generations of pigeons in this splendid family.

The colour of a pigeon and what can breed what is always a topic of conversation with the latest question being “Can two blue’s breed a chequer” From my experience no but as always with these questions I put it too our resident genetics enthusiast Chris who came back with the following. “Blue Bar x Blue Bar can only breed blue in terms of colour and bar in terms of pattern. They could if both carrying the "e" gene for recessive red breed a chocolate but this would be shown as a blue pigeon with the modifier giving the chocolate appearance. Blue is the colour and Chequer is the pattern. If the pigeon concerned is chequer in colour, then because chequer is dominant to bar, then one of its parents must be a chequer of some kind, either red chequer (carrying blue) blue chequer or silver chequer (recessive)” It is always nice to have someone handy who knows about and understands genetics much better than I do. This question came about because there was a blue chequer on our auction site and had the original pedigree attached so I suppose the question was always going to be asked. The fancier selling the pigeon was only doing so in good faith because he has the original pedigree. But and there is always a but when such things arise there could of course have been a wrong ring number put into the computer when the pedigree was first done and this not noticed, with using computers ever day I know that this is an easy mistake to make. What I did notice from looking at the pedigree was that three of the grandparents were blue chequers.
