I've had no issue with getting dark / extra dark ebonies out of 1st or 2nd generation and I pair extra dark eb to dark standards. I get a crap shoot, from medium to extra dark. My darkest eb I've produced was out of a dark standard with crisp belly and an extra dark eb. I've taken my first generation offspring from the standard / eb pairs and paired them together (mostly medium eb paired to dark eb) and I tend to get lighter results.. mostly medium. I've then paired those to a dark standard, and I've gotten extra dark. Crazy how eb genes work.

so here is my ebony female, i was told she is a medium (ebony gene from doug wilson)

this is her belly (not been groomed in a while)

these two have me an eb carrier with as the judges put it "a nice clean belly" she looks like a light phase as well.

This is my male who i was told is med. eb also. (not been groomed) {ebony gene from strk but further back either 5R9 or RNJR}

his belly

Belly of darker baby and lighter baby from Std. (light maybe med. phase) mom and med. Eb. dad

i can add a picture of std mom too but phone is almost dead and i will have to send the picture to my computer.
