Old German Owl

Correct, ash colored. The ash color of the tail bar, even though we cannot see the bar in this pigeon because of the white bleaching effect, has been spread all over the bird. If you believe that a brown pigeon with spread would be dark brown, just like the color of the bar in its tail, you would be right. Unfortunately, I do not have a pigeon of that color to show you. Now, just for fun we are going to add one more gene to our palette--dilute. What color do you think we might get when we add dilute to this ash red pigeon with spread?
