    We like to joke about your "Mutt Motel" but there always seems to be a method to your madness and can't argue with your success with breeding. Looking forward to seeing the result!

    To be honest, this cross is not about a specific goal or an attempt to produce nice fish, its more about testing a theory of mine. While watching the results and what "surprises" they may bring is always interesting, that is not why I am doing it.

    I have always been fascinated by the apparent (to me) relationship between the BD gene and the PB gene. Now that I have combined the two (PB + BD gene) in the mother (the "smurf") I want to see if I can pull the genes apart by crossing to a non-PB Non-BD fish (the male in this scenario). Or will all the fish that inherit the PB gene from the smurf, also inherit the PB gene as well?

    Was the pb gene introduced through hybridization or originally developed from the species' original genetics? If the second were true it would have to be recessive, as the pigeon blood gene is not expressed in the wild? I may be wrong about that though I am a noob and don't know very much.

    neither, if I understand you correctly. It is a mutation that occurred in domestication.

    What is the definition of pigeon blood? How would one know if it is a mutation and not a recessive expressed through generations of line breeding?
