he is ash red spread.those black splashes means he is carrying 2 colours.the one he is showing and another hidden.if you pair him to a black hen you might get birds the same colour.you dont know what he is carrying.also he may be only carrying 1 gene for spread.

thank you,if i paired him to his dtr who is a red griz would i stand more chance of getting a similar youngster in colour to him or am i on the wrong track,steve.

it all depends on what the cock bird is genetically.on face he is an ash red spread carrying a dilution.in order to get cocks and hens like him you should pair him to another spread coloured bird.although if he has 2 spread chromasoms in his genes then a red cheq hen would throw red spreads and red cheqs but also blacks or blue cheqs.if he is paired to a red hen then any bird thats blue will be a hen as the cocks other colour will be shown only in his daughters.

What are his parents? He's a spread ash red carrying blue by the sounds.

Also what pattern is he? and what did you pair him to, to get his daughter?

hens dont carry any other colour than shown.ash red is the strongest colour then blue then brown.blacks are basically blue with the spread gene.so pairing a red onto a blue will not guarantee the young will be red.the simple answer is if you want a pigeon a particular colour then pair 2 birds that are that colour.im sure someone will have an ash red spread hen spare.

You have a bit of learning to do on colours, patterns and modifiers i'm afraid.

Like geo has said there are 3 colours, brown, blue and ash red, in order of dominance. Then you have 4 patterns which are barless, bar, chequer and t-chequer, in order of dominance.

Then you have modifiers such as various grizzles, bronzes, spread (which makes blacks when on blue, spread browns on brown and spread ash red when on ash reds), recessive red, recessive white, indigo, dominant opal, recessive opal etc
