Default Crestie Genetics - Thoughts?

I'm wondering if anybody has experienced the following:

  • getting dalmatian babies from two non-dal parents (is it recessive maybe?) myself, if I breed two non-dals, I don't get any dals, so far.
  • similarly, getting flame or harley babies from non-flame/harley parents (again, I haven't got any myself from this breeding)
  • I think yellow might be dominant to red - when I bred yellow to orange, I got a couple of reds. When I bred yellow to yellow, I got a rusty-orange baby and the rest were yellow, tan or brown
  • similarly I think light colours are dominant to darker ones - when I bred a cream-yellow to a mocha-yellow, most babies were chocolate which is much darker than both parents, showing the darker colour was hidden by the two light coloured parents - right?
  • super dals - can they come from breeding dal to dal?
  • does harley come from breeding flame x tiger or is that just a rumour? I've only ever got flames from breeding flame x flame, no harleys

What size of collection and for how many generations have you bred them to draw the conclusions of various colours dominance and interactions? I think it is very difficult to ascertain these things without having extensive collections breeding for multiple generations, in order to get something verging on statistically significant data, or even just rough trends!

I know that, but as far as I know, nobody else has been keeping records of their breedings and the offspring's colour!! I'm just making some initial guesswork here. I'd love to have a huge collection to do lots of crosses to find out these things for sure. It would help if the community were keeping track of what they got from which pairings...

Would be a very interesting project, though would be surprised if some of the big breeders hadn't dabbled into it a bit

I tried in the past, just took too much time and space.

I am now selling my entire crested gecko colony so no chance of me doing it in the future either

i`ve got dalmation babies out of parents that arnt dalmation, grandparents arnt dal`s either.

red buckskins to harley gave a mix of plain, flame and harleys.

have been told that pinstripe to buckskin will give 100& pinstripes, going to try it and see if it works!

In your opinions and experience what have you seen come from Blonde Harlequins to Orange Extremes?

This is what I'm planning on breeding next year, both of them have dal spots too, the blonde has some red dal spots also. Possible breeding the blonde to my yellow tiger as well, she also has red dal spots.

I havnt had all that success with breeding so far but I have been breeding a pinstripe with a yellow dalmation, and all the young have had the harlequin markings and dalmation spots, but different base colours.

so i've found the opposite really but obviously its only one generation............

have you thought about whether it matters about whether the traits coming from the male or the female? it does effect it in some animals
