When people say Sharps have a weak gene pool, I think they are flat out wrong. Rich Ihle has a female Sharp who produced three years in a row. Most people who say its a weak gene pool have never even attempted to produce them. The best part about Sharps is they gain color as they mature, most people can admit that the majority of normal Kahls will loose color as they grow. This is the main reason people like me choose the Sharp strain over Kahl. Don't get me worng, Pete Kahls striped line, Tom Burkes lipstick sunglows, Jeff Ronnes pastel albinos, and many other Kahl albinos are absolutely extrordinary. Those breeders have all done something really special with the line. But I don't see how you can say Ron M's Sharp sunglows from last year and Doug M's pastel dream Sharp sunglow are not jawdropping. In my opinion, the Sharp strain has a few more years of selective breeding, then they will be just as colorful, if not more colorful then most Kahl albinos. This is just my two cents. I only work with the Sharp strain, and my opinion is based off of three years of talking to breeders of both strains and looking at countless pictures.
