It turns out that all the "odd babies" produced from the Goblin male since 2001 are actually "Yellow Bellies"...........I have been calling them " Goblin Markers". Yellow Bellies aka "het Ivories" are believed to be the heterozygous form of an Ivory ball aka "Lilly"............I don't know if my Goblin male is the beginning of a great Ivory project or not?...........but from the looks of things, he will be...................who knew?..............I knew the Goblin was special when I first imported him in as a baby. When I breed the Goblin male or any of his "Marker" sons to a normal female..........the clutch yields 50% "Markers" and 50% normals.

In 2005 I bred Goblin x Goblin Marker and produced a "Super Goblin" aka Ivory..........so if I would have just kept moving forward with the project instead of putting them all on the shelf, I would have been the first to produce a "white super"...........I'm calling all my "supers"..........."Super Goblins" out of respect to my poor old original Goblin male who had "the goods" the whole time............I just didn't think that the subtle markings on the "Goblin Markers" was anything "special"..........well it was!!.......and now all breeders and hobbyists are looking for those little subtle differences in hopes of stumbling onto something cool!!

The het Ivory aka Yellow Belly aka Goblin are all believed to be "gene enhancers".........let's start crossing them and find out what they can really do!!
