Results of clutch number two!

Clutch number two is fully hatched! The pairing was Barnhart black pastel yellowbelly X lesser. Final tally is 1.0 black pastel yellowbelly lesser, 2.0 black pastel lessers, 1.0 black pastel yellowbelly, 0.1 black pastel, 0.1 lesser yellowbelly, and 1.0 lesser. A little male heavy, but I’m still pretty happy with the turnout! As a result, most of this clutch will be available once they start eating.

Barnhart black pastel comparison

These are a couple of Barnhart line black pastels that were produced from my Barnhart line black pastel yellowbelly male.  They’re the same age, though the female is slightly larger.  I wonder if this is just natural variation in the black pastel gene or if it could be due to the elusive third gene that is suspected to cause the extreme look in the Barnhart black pastel yellowbelly combo?
