Breeding / Colors question

Postby LvsSunDrop on Thu Feb 03, 2005 2:44 am

Does anyone have a compilation... or know where I could find one... of basic breeding and color "rules"? In other words, can anyone point me in the direction of something or someone (Donya? :wink:) that could tell me what color(s) of babies you may get if you breed parent of color A with parent of color B. I know there are lots of conditions and exceptions to the rule, but I was wondering if there were any basic rules of thumb?

Thanks so much!

Hi Shannon,

I asked the same question a while back and got directed to this:

I can't remember who made it but it's very useful. :D

WOW! It's extremely helpful! Thanks, Janet. Its absolutely amazing to see the possible color combinations. Whoever put that together sure did put a lot of work into it!

Maybe one of the moderators should sticky it?

That's the color chart I did, but it's a bit out of date at this point. It still serves its general purpose though...just know that it's not the be-all and end-all of color inheritance for Pomacea bridgesii. I found the whole list layout thing is kind of awkward, so if you just want to plug in 2 random colors and know what the possibilities are, I have a java program (for Java 1.4.1) available on the downloads part of my snail website: http://free.hostultra.com/~applesnails. That of course assumes you have a JRE and everything on your computer, which can be a pain to set up if you don't already have java working.

I think the charts are just fine, Donya. I didn't have any trouble with reading them. I just wanted a basic idea on inheritance for color. I think I tried using your program before, but since I have a Mac, it told me it wasn't compatible or something like that. :(

At any rate, I think its a good chart! Thanks again!
