You don't want to see a Dirty Blue Bar. Smoky on Blue Bar is nice but not Dirty. The best I have ever seen on a clean Blue Bar is Ice. I also like just plain, clean Blue Bar by itself.

Here's my first Gaditano of 09, a nice clean Blue Bar:

Yes, they would produce 50% Dirty Blues (of whatever pattern) and 50% clean Blues (of whatever pattern) and of course 50% of the total offspring will be Black.

Re: Ebony, dirty


 My picas have dirty in them. I have one blue baby in the nest that has the blackest beak and legs I ever recall seeing. Can't wait to see him fully feathered out.

Re: Ebony


I'm pretty sure I have it in my Picas as well. It's just been a long time since I have bred them, and I just don't remember. If I'm not mistaken, the only sure way to ID it is by the black feet in the nest, I don't know of any way to ID it in adults.

I do know my Horseman have a lot of it in them. Many of the Blacks have the white tics Dirty causes on the hocks and on the rump.

Re: Ebony


I believe that if you look at the side of the bird that you will find grease quills on this one - that's what the shine is almost assuredly from. I used a dirty blue check marchenero that had lots of grease quills when I created the California Color Pigeons. I know for a fact that some of the Marcheneros have loads of grease quills. (They're the feathers along the flank that look almost like little paint brushes - partially unopened.)

Re: Ebony


Alan, an easy way to tell if an adult blue bar or check bird is carrying dirty is to open its wing and look at the underwing feathers. A dirty bird has darker gray colored feathers; a wild-type (non-dirty) normally has whitish underwing feathers.
