Re: Spanish Pouter Champions


There are Khaki's going around the US, or what might be Khaki (dilute brown), I am not sure if that's what they are or not. I got mine (Carmello) from Gail and she just calls them Yellows. I am not sure if they are true Khakis or really Brown Qualmonds. If they are dilute (Khaki) why hasn't dilute shown up in any other colors but Brown? It's a mystery to me.

Here's my Carmello. I lost him after only a month and I am still sad over it. emoticon The color in the video doesn't do him justice. He was nice and yellow.

really nice! sorry for your loss emoticon I have yet to locate the law of physics that states that disease/predators and death in general has to start with your best or at least your favorite animals....that color really is nice looking on the spanish bird though.

I agree Alan, Qualmond or Faded, I'd be surprised if it is dilute, it's not a modifier found in the Spanish pouters, apart from recent introduction to Marcheneros, and these are largely outside of Spain.

Interesting, I never considered Faded. Another mystery I have is this brown Qualmond hen pictured below is proven to be of the checker pattern. The mystery is, she is not "yellowish" like Carmello and others. Could it be that with the Yellowish colored birds one is Faded and the other Qualmond? Or is the difference because of other factors involved such as pattern or darkening factors. OR is it possible she isn't brown at all? I am certain she is a true Qualmond from the many offspring I got from her when mated with a wild type cоck.

I think I have figured out that law. It's not one of physics at all, it's physiological. It simply hurts more when your best die.

The sad thing about Carmello is I didn't have him long enough to get any offspring from him. emoticon

What makes you think she is brown Qualmond Alan? I think she is blue qualmond, with bronzing, probably smokey too.

You could be right... hey, I'm not as smart as I look emoticon

That would sure explain a lot of things. I am just not used to seeing Qualmonds with so much bronze. Most of mine looked like this:

I think it's just down to variation in expression, you find the same thing with Tortoiseshell grizzles, some show more bronzing than others, just depends what modifiers are actually there, and their hetero/homozygosity.
