These guys are just awesome... Super happy with the outcome... All have shed... They lightend up a bit but got much higher in contrast... I think these will make for some stunning adults...

They are crackers Gregg, I read somewhere that the Tiger gene has not been genetically proven yet, is this true?

I get confused between the tigers and pinstripes - both have the clearish lines down the spine or so I'm told either way I do like the pattern

Thanks everyone...

There is virtually nothing known about the tiger gene or how it works... As far as I know I am the only one so far to get a clutch with 100% tigers so, I think I will be able to figure out how the pattern mutaion works over the next couple of seasons... Should be fun...

I kinda like that, yet hate it at the same time lol.
being the 1st to something is nice, but messing around proving it for the next 3 years or more is hard work.
good luck with that dude.

awsome hoggies buddy. those albino tigers are amazing! what were the parents? both tigers, one tiger, 'het' tiger? do you think it is a co-dom or dominant mutation or a recesive. or just polymorphic/'selectively bred'.

Thanks everyone...

Good work Gregg :2thumb:
I have 2 Extreme Red Tiger females that are up to size for next season, looking forward to seeing what pops out.
Dont be shy dude... Throw some photos up... LOL:2thumb:

From what I have gathered, the tiger gene has not been pinpointed yet... No one knows how it works exactly... For right now, I am guessing polygenic line trait... The next couple of seasons will tell us more... I am taking this project and rolling with it... Cant wait to see what comes out when 2 tigers are paired up... All I know is I bred the female to a normal red and got a clutch full of reds with mostly normal patterns... Then I introduced a different male after she laid the first clutch and got these tigers in the second clutch...

Here are pics of the parents to the tiger clutch...
