Glad I'm able to inspire and motivate you Jeff. I can't even motivate myself most of the time lol.

So beautiful! I'm super jealous of your supreme reds. I may have to start a colony for myself lol.

Am I wrong or in your pictures/videos, the males are also almost fully red?

Mark,

The males are hit or miss. Some may be almost as solid as the females but most of them aren't. What you can do is selectively breed only the solid males and you may end up getting more solid males down the line.

Thanks,

Nick

The one with a smiley is a SSS+ grade.

Germans have selectively bred that pattern and called them K14.
