Hi all,

We're deep in the middle of breeding season here which means we struggle to keep up to date on photos etc :(
Here is a bit of an update on the Cinder projects we have been working on over the last few years.

Diffused Cinder - We are really pleased with this one, the lateral diffusion is better than any of the Diffused Cinder we have produced before and we're really pleased to see it is possible to get them like this.


Amel Cinder - We have been working on getting brighter pink Amel Cinder and will be line breeding for colour over the next couple of years. We're hoping that we can improve on the colour and contrast. Here is one of the project corns from this year:


Lava Cinder - We have two distinct lines of cinder. One which is more silver, has dark borders and high contrast reds in the saddles and one which is more tan and coffee colour with more subtle reds and less saddle borders. They are very different to each other but both interesting in their own way. We will continue to line breed for these traits over the next couple of years as well.
The Lava cinder animals we have produced come from these two different lines.
Last year - from the more subtle line:


This year - from the more high contrast line:



Cinder is really something special for us and is probably the main focus of our line breeding projects :)

Cheers

congrats guys... but I cant believe how our luck has been so different on the cinder bloods lol...I have now have in all, including breeding babies from the original parents, 8 clutches for the total sum of ZERO cinder bloodreds, yet you get at least one a year lol..
on the brightside, I've had two potential world 1st this week, including a hypo cinder bloodred.. go figure lol.

Cheers all :)

The cinder stuff is really interesting for us and we put a lot of our time in to it.

Nige - Luck comes and goes mate, by the looks of things you have had a stonking season on other breedings. We've had just as many be a disappointment as well!

Cheers

its a weird one... 7 years to produce a plasma stripe, and get 2 amel plasma stripes beforehand.
1st go trying to produce sulfur motleys I get 4 males from 10 eggs from the same pairing as you had.. so that was way lucky lol..
the cinder bloods have been unlucky from day one really...

Had some other things go well, but the greater majority of those have been projects started in 2006/07, so real long term stuff.
