This male was actual fair to middle in the quality department when compared to its clutch mates. It was about 7-8 months old in this pic. Howie kept back a female that blows this on away. I too do not like using the term Okeetee for anything other than locality okeetees but I do use the term "Okeetee phase" when talking about those with the okeetee look.

Howie also produced the only known true amelanistic locale specific Okeetee as well. I say amel Okeetee so people are not confused with reverse okeetee although I guess you could say that this beauty is a true Okeetee Hunt Club locality reverse okeetee. It was a spontaneous mutation that occured in 2007? It was the only one out of the whole clutch and no other prior or subsequent clutches ever produced another. Notice how the coloring does differ from the typical reverse okeetees. A friend of his has it now and has done some test breeding with it and has some very interesting results. That's all I will say about it

Here is a young female that is the product of breeding an Abbotts to an Extreme. She in my opinion is GORGEOUS even though she doesnt have the typical Okee phase look. I will try to reproduce this look.
