Inbreeding & linebreeding
We have developed a brown version of our Mottled blacks.
The amount of spotting a bird gets will increase after each moult,reaching their maximum spotting potential by their third year, just like our mottled blacks.
Each white feather has small to large random brown spotting.
They breed 50% true to color/pattern, also producing a low number of chocolate palms and marbled chocolates.
