Will my beardie be partly orange?

When I first got him he was gray. Now he’s showing orange after shedding! I’m
Not sure if you can really see on the photo. Do you think he will become more orange when he’s grown? So curious!! :)

he looks like a basic dragon to me. he’ll probably turn out like louie, hints of orange.

ignore his shed face haha. he has orange on his front legs, his beard, and the sides of his face. he also has an orange back when hes not basking and has his dark colors out.
so yes, he may have some orange but i doubt he’ll get a lot of orange but anythings possible.

what kind of morph is he?

My restricted observation is with bearded dragons that their colors are more intense as hatchlings and juveniles and tend to become less intense as adults. Though adults demonstrate their feelings often by brightening up their coloured patterns espectally in the face and beard ( I call it showing their happy colours when they do this).
CBDs: Cleopatra & Caesar born 28Jan19.
Puff (RIP 10Dec15),Rex (RIP 16Mar17),Toothless (RIP 26Nov17).Peppa (RIP 22Mar19).
EBTSs : George & Mildred (born july 2010).
EWSs : Fluffy - 4yr rescued lawnmowing accident victim 14Nov17.
Lucky - cat attack rescue, fatal SI RIP 21Jul2010.
Wriggles - rescued injured ,thought she was a big lizard, over 8 yrs old, RIP 2Feb16. .
Gecko : Godzilla the hatchling GEHYRA GECKO (hatched May 2019)

Really depends on the genetics, which is why AHBD's suggestion is the closest "correct" answer anyone is gonna give.
For instance, some of the deeply saturated red genetics that Josh D is producing, start off as brown colored hatchlings, who brighten up and get more and more red with age.

Some, like you suggested, peak when they are babies, and lose their colors or vibrancy with growth. For instance some of the zero trans babies are almost black when they hatch, but quickly loose that deep dark color with age.

Point being, the only way to know... and I use that term loosely... is to look at both parents. Without knowing both parents, you're in for an arguably more fun experience in watching your dragon grow up :mrgreen:
