I bred my 4th copper when it grew up with another shadow walker - it's a green copper and it gave a the brownish egg. http://dragcave.net/lineage/WPcNH

 

edit: I'll be hiding it before I sign off for the night so the lineage might not be visible later.

These reports of the various colored eggs in breeding are intriguing!

 

Will have to try when I am not so egglocked. xd.png

 

And I am still looking for one.

Just bred a few of mine.

 

Male Red Copper x Female Red Nebula

 

Male Tri-Horn x Female Brown Copper

 

Male Tsunami x Female Green Copper

 

So many pretty combinations, though. I'm going to have to try out some of the suggestions here, too. tongue.gif

Tried to breed two purebreed pairs, got a no interest sad.gif Oh well, I've got six more pairs growing up.

Scythe, it might be interesting to hear what results you got.

Right, sorry about that. tongue.gif

 

Male Red Copper x Female Red Nebula yielded a brown copper egg

 

Male Tri-Horn x Female Brown Copper yielded a brown copper egg

 

Male Tsunami x Female Green Copper yielded a green copper egg

 

Also bred a male green copper to a bright-breasted, but only got a bright-breasted out of that one.

I just bred this: http://dragcave.net/lineage/nWBAd 

Not sure I like the combo as much as I thought I would.

It will go to the AP unless someone wants it?

Wow, that is really pretty. wub.gif I am egglocked xd.png

 

I am sure someone will take it; you may have better luck in the Departures thread. <3

I tried green copper x green copper and got... a green copper egg. Not terribly surprising, but I guess they breed true if they're PB?

orange copper x green copper = green copper

 

brown copper x golden wyvern (alpine exclusive) = orange copper

 

brown copper x deepsea (coastal exclusive) = green copper

 

 

...hmm.

Hmm. Green nebula x plain copper = plain copper.

Plain copper x red nebula = liver of sulfur copper.

 

Very nice. But now I'm egg locked. Again.

 

I decided to work on a copper x neb. even gen first. Just a little one.

Lol you couldn't resist huh? That is going to be a lovely line. I got a no interest for plain copper with black.

To me, it sounds like the color of the Copper egg depends on what biome the mate comes from. For dragons that can come from any biome (metallics, Holidays, etc) it's random.

Indeed. I bet if you breed two different colored Coppers it's random. Or maybe it's only one of the parents' colors. But it'd be cool to breed, say, a brown and an orange and get a green.

Wait - once brown Copper x Golden Wyvern is brown Copper, the next time orange Copper? That seems like it's random...

Maybe it was switched?

I'm not a huge fan of whiptails, but the pairing with the verdigris does bring out the blue striping on their backs.

I consider it a challenge to figure out a good looking lineage with every dragon. Been looking for a good one for whiptails for awhile happy.gif

/challenge accepted!

 

It has made me notice there is no small number of dragons on the site with teal accents. I blame TJ.

red copper x red copper => red copper

(I think? I have trouble telling red and brown apart, tbh.)

 

So that's another indicator for PBs inheriting the color of the parents if both parents have the same color.

It seems they breed either the color of the non-copper parent's biome or the Copper parent's color.

 

Saying if you breed a brown Copper with a GW, you'll get red for alpine or brown for the Copper parent.
