I imagine that if you have 2 prior generations with pink
genes and these have been intercrossed that may influence the beard inheritance.
I do not recall if one needs 4 shots of pink or 2 to obtain 'red' beards? I knew
it once ... Of course we really have a different situation with the arilbreds in
that they are not tetraploids but amphidiploids behaving like 2 diploids side by
side, but while going through their various phases of meiosis it is possible
that a crossing over could take place ...

seedling from TSXWR
All the seedlings from that cross have displayed
beards that are very orange in the throat. That same coloration, though
even a bit closer to tangerine, is in the throat of Childsong. The same
color is appearing in the beards of a few of my other crosses. I'll have
to do some checking into the background of all these different crosses to see
if I can detect what might be influencing this.
