  • Question about Hatchling colors

    Hello all, it's been a while since I last posted. I have a question about this hatchlings colors and how it may progress. I am wondering how the darker parts of crest and dorsum will progress, color wise. Do these oranges have a possibility to become creamy, or will they be a bold orangish color? Both parents have cream, but they are not the same color of cream. If that makes sense or helps lol

    In my experience the orange fades to creamier white, depending on the parents. If he came from parents with an orange tinge to the dorsum, he's more likely to retain it. But a lot of my creamy babies hatch out with a "dirty" dorsum that whitens up at around 10-15 grams.
