You need indigo to produce Andalusian. If you cannot find a Lahore with indigo you'll need to source it from another breed.

Thankfully indigo is a dominant gene, so you'll only have to make one cross, and then you can work on grading it onto your pigeons.

Step one, find an indigo or Andalusian pigeon with a similar body shape (or as close as possible) to Lahore.

Step two, pair this pigeon to a Lahore, ideally black or blue bar.

Step three, ONLY use the indigo or Andalusian babies going forward, choose the best one and pair it to a purebred Lahore.

Step four, continue repeating step three until you are happy with the results. It will take you a number of generations.

For anyone reading this in the future, you can use this same procedure to transfer any autosomal dominant gene into another breed.
