Producing Black?

Ok you genetic savvy peeps I have a question. I want to start a line of platinum dragon DTPK's. I've already have a bid on a male so now I'm looking for a female. What color should I be looking for to produce black? I know melano females are infertile. Also, are DT females not as common as males?, I just don't see many. Thanks .

I'm not sure about the composition of platinum dragons but if they work similarly to ordinary platinums, then you need either a white opaque, copper (preferably a more silver shade), or another white dragon.

DT are believed to be able to improve HM/PK finnage. And females are believed to be the stronger carrier of form genes. I guess people would rather keep good DT females for themselves.
