Indigo is an autosomal dominant mutation. This means that only one parent of either sex needs to carry the mutant gene for it to express in the next generation, but it must be carried by at least one parent. Two non-indigos cannot create an indigo. Unless it is hidden by another modifier, a pigeon not expressing this trait will not pass it onto its children.
