PostSubject: is it possible to cross a Calico with an Orangespot    Mon Jul 16, 2012 9:25 am

Hi I'm wondering is it possible to cross a Calico BN with an Orangespot or are they a completey different species. If its possible id like to see pics of what you could get. Also is there a Longfin variety of the Orangespots. Hope you don't find this a stupid question.

No they can not interbreed. They are separate species. And as far as I know there are no longfin varieties of orange spot bn. There are no stupid questions so never be afraid to ask. We are always glad to help Smile Also alot of questions have already been asked here so it doesn't hurt to use the search function for the forum

I wouldn't be surprised if peppermints bred with your calicos, but not sure.
