    Default Alot of chocolate!

    The last two litters out of my dog Blue "FC/AFC Its all over now Baby Blue" have been almost all chocolate. One litter was solid choco and the other was 8 for 10. He is Black so i find that kind of strange. Has anyone had these kind of results breeding black to chocolate?

    Kip, color produced often defies averages. The only thing certain is if you want color, you won't get it; however, I have bred two of your Cash's brothers to chocolates and have gotten 1 lone black in big litters.

    I got an 8 out of 10 chocolate to black litter once breeding a son of FC/AFC Canis Major's River Bear ex FC/AFC Brush Creek's Jessie to a daughter of Nitram Bull Market ex Haverhill's Jet Jennifer. Probably the deepest chocolate colors I'd ever seen....more mahogany than chocolate.

    Besides the fact that Blue is a helluva BLACK dog, his strong chocolate production will probably increase his demand as a stud.

    That's just his mom determined to put her mark on every grandpup.

    I bred my chocolate female who does not carry yellow to Running with the Devil. Her litter was 6 chocolates (4 boys and 2 girls) and two blacks (1 boy and 1 girl)

    I bred my black female to a chocolate stud and got 7 puppies, of which 5 were chocolate and 2 were black. I also know of a litter from a yellow female, bred to a yellow factored black, that produced all black puppies. When another female was bred to the same stud, there were only 2 black pups out of a litter of 9. It's like a box of chocolates " you never know what you're going to get".

    I bred my chocolate male to my yellow female and got 1/2 black and 1/2 yellow. She had two litters with the same results. Check the VetGen color chart for litter ratios on labs. It was spot on. If you know the ChromaGene of the parents, it seems very accurate!
