He paired up with a dominant pied cobalt and produced a recessive pied skyblue with the same turquoise hue. According to older books I had back then, that shade is the influence of the green parent(s) who are split to blue. Caspir is absolutely lovely. Is he a baby you raised? What do his parents look like?
Thanks for all the good info, 2many. I bought Caspir from a pet store. I know what you mean about the turquoise. To me, that's not skyblue. But I'm thinking of the actual blue sky. That was throwing me off.

Are there pictures posted of the above mentioned family? I'd like to check them out.
