Tiger grizzle

Post by HomeSweetHome »

I have a recessive red tiger grizzle cock bird. How to get black and white tiger Grizzles? Cross to a blue spread hen?

Are you sure your pigeon is a tiger grizzle and not a mottled recessive red? Take a look at this video: https://youtu.be/BXLryEbiJeo

You are probably right. What makes the mottled look?

It is recessive red, plus some modifier. I've never received a satisfactory answer to what the modifier might be, and I plan to look into it in the future myself. If anyone else has some knowledge they're more than welcome to share! :D
