:Hello,
:It looks like this will be the year I will finally get either one or a pair of indigos, and if you guys could answer a couple of questions for me I would be greatful.
:Are the red chins and the regular black indigos found in the same areas in the wild?
:The reason I ask I would like to get one of each and maybe breed them in the future but I would not want to create an integrade by doing so.
:Do red chin indigos always produce red chin off spring?
:Do you some times get black chin indigos in with a clutch of red chins?
:I look forward to anyones input on this
:Thanks,have a great weekend
:David
:

Breeding black to redthroat will not create an intergrade. It occurs naturally in the wild. As far as being found int the same area the answer is yes. Blacks are more common than reds. I personally have only seen reds in the Fort Pierce area. Red chin individuals bred with blacks will produce some of each. I have had it happen on two occasions. It all adds up to one thing, an Eastern Indigo is an Eastern Indigo, beautiful animals.
