Dark heterozygous grizzle American show racer hen. Breeder said it was a black but I can clearly see the tail bar so maybe not a spread after all.

Thank you Adam. New to pigeon genetics one step at a time and all that but I’m very pleased with your comment as I learnt about the spread gene and it’s related phenotypes by watching your YouTube videos. Thank you.

Thank you HSH. This is my favourite colour too and I intend keeping these. Just bought a similar cock bird but as I understand homozygous grizzle looks much different so maybe I need to put her to a blue cock bird maybe a checker.
