If you breed a bearded dragon and it doesn't show traits of its parents is it possible for its offspring to have those traits and show them

Yes, definitely but also depending on what you breed it with.

If you had a specific example of a trait you were thinking about we could help explain better. Some traits are recessive and need both parents to have them for the offspring to be visible in that trait. Other traits are dominant and can show visible in offspring with only 1 parent having it.
Additionally, two parents who have the same recessive gene that don't visibly show can produce babies with that visible trait.

In a breeders context not that I'm a breeder by no means but what morph would have more value a red genetic strip or a orange Hypo/Translucent just curious for a Male if I decide to breed my female is a orange Hypo/Translucent and my other is a witblit I'm wondering what would give you a wider variety of offspring

From what I've seen the genetic stripes go for more than the hypo trans. But it just depends on the visual quality I suppose.

As far as wider variety of offspring, I only am seeing you say you have a hypo trans and a without, so nothing to compare to unless I read it wrong.

Hi there, that's too many variations to have a very good assumption of what you might end up with. BTW, were some or all of these dragons from Dachiu ? Just wondering because they had breeder Bob Cawley"s red lines in their stock from way back.
