Color Breeding

For a color breeder to be successful, one has to have a basic working knowledge of
IRN color genetics. The availability of a varied selection of primary mutations and
combinations thereof makes this hobby not only satisfying and exciting, but also
quite confusing.

Breeder's use of varying mutation terminology has further added to the confusion. It
is therefore important that breeders not only understand color genetics but should
strictly adhere to a system of mutation nomenclature.
