All breeders dream to get a new mutation, in addition to a beautiful color, Who would not have gotten the kitlitz lutino?

We have two ways to reach our proposition; we spend like Little Red Riding Hood. The first path is short, we woke up one day, look at gold diamond and one is turquoise all, from beak to tail, amazing, I have, but this road is not safe, it is not certain that happen. However there is another way, longer, but surely the experts who tell us, is the way to work, persistence and responsibility, is a journey of about 10 or 12 years if all goes well, but I assure you it it.

The plan is not complicated, but as we said before, you have to be very consistent and not impatient. We get through the introduction of mutation and mutated from another species. For example will the following: We want to get a chest danacola gray brown, then start chest danacola hybridizing a brown with a mutated japan isabelita of gray, getting male mutation carriers hybrids in successive generations only males become fertile, to one day reach our reward and we see our cherished danacola gray.

Every two years a generation will go forward because it is a recessive mutation, need at least 7 or 8 generations, that makes 14 to 16 years, but with a little luck we can make progress annually.

The game consite in the following: always work with a male carrier of gray, this bird to play with a female pure danacola give us 50% of the male samples (which are the fertile, the females do not) carriers of gray, but we do with each isabelita hybrids with mutated to know whether or not carriers of gray, this will possibly every season we can only know this. In the best case the first pigeon is mutated and can put that male "safe" carrier with a female pure gray to advance a generation.

 If we want to make it easier and bearable we try to get a dominant mutation such as the ino or pearl, so when we cross a male hybrid that we do not know if a female carrier with pure, when we see a mutated daughter and know that the male is the carrier and partner, which will serve for the next breeding season are all males, of which half "in theory" be carriers, repeating the same play.

 Well, I hope that someone is motivated and gets down to work with it in a few years we will see birds like this, I assure you that precious to us who like both colors ancestral mutations ...



  Breeder Alberto comment: Thanks for the article. Indeed, at the moment these are the only two roads, chance or hybridization. The latter is, as we all know, the way in which today we have red canaries. Also by this route exists Jaspe by this way of hybridization. But this is so far. Genetic engineering will progress so fast, you possibly can induce mutations in a few years. Look at this article:

 Induction of mutations.
