Arrow How to breed (clear) Texas clearbodies.

Just to make sure in case anyone is unsure - I know HOW to breed them, ie. who to put over who.

I want to know how to get the clearest colour (or lack of, if you prefer).

I bought a violet opaline texas clearbody hen today - and she is hands down the clearest I've ever seen. A lot of the birds I've seen have marked bleeding going on, even to the point that some of them just look like a pale light-green. Since violets produce the best clearbodies, is there a known technique? I can't seem to find a good pattern to reduce the body-colour bleeding.

I have an (unrelated) violet clearbody male that I plan to put her with after I put her to the Lutino male - is it just a matter of breeding the clearest birds together or is there another neat trick? I know when you're breeding albinos it can be good to breed to a grey to get a reduced blue suffusion. Maybe something similar with T.clearbodies? Any help greatly appreciated.

To achieve that one needs to gather information about these two basic groups Albinism and Melanism

Ino gene totally mask grey and dark factor therefore to eliminate suffusion use of green normal or opaline with one or two dark factors is recommend for lutino and grey normal or opaline is recommended for albino same goes for TCB to achieve clearest body

Again use of normal or opaline is recommended to improve the quality of markings, varieties belonging to albinism, dilution and leucism group are not recommended (lutino belongs to albinism group)
