Help ID Morph

Hello all, so when I originally purchased my female Pied Ball I knew something was up with her immediately just because she was a hatchling and was covered in spots but the breeder couldnt explain it. I know normal pied balls get spots as they age but I havent seen any ever hatch covered in spots. Another thing about her is the spots (freckles) seem to be still coming in as she grows. She just gets more & more. Nothing is known of the parents. She is now 300 grams.

Wow that girl is wicked! I believe there is something out there called the pinto pied?? Not positive what it does or how it works. I have seen some picks on here where there was a discussion. Mabe look that up & who knows, she may be part of that or something similar.
If you plan on breeding her mabe you can isolate a new gene or have a better idea of what is goin on genetically.
Good luck with her, shes beautiful.

A pinto pied is a russo pied. Russo is in the blue-eyed leucistic complex like mojave, lesser, phantom, mystic, special, etc. etc. It doesn't cause freckling like this.

I know Dan Wolfe ages ago was working with a heavily spotted pied line. Nothing to my knowledge really came of it. He decided to retire from the business about a year after he hatched his highly spotted pied and auctioned all his animals off.

It's a great project to work with and certainly a stunning animal. Please do keep us updated as she grows, I'd love to know if those spots start connecting.

Definitely not a pinto pied. But definitely worth trying to reproduce.

Thank you guys! I do plan on breeding her. Currently trying to find a male with the same freckling or even something similar.

If you can't find a male that shares her characteristics, just go with a visual pied male and breed one of her pied sons back to her.
