First breeding question/s

So I'm planning to start my first breeding project, My HM dragon Ribbon (Darkmoon17's spawn) is ready to spawn *she has a white dot right by her poop hole*

Question is, which among the 4 would be perfect?

the first picture is the Ribbon HM Dragon

2nd picture is Silver, he's the sibling of Ribbon, HM Dragon aswell, though He might be just a Super Delta, not really sure

3rd picture is Copper, an HM Red copper, got him at petco

4th is Posh, got him at petsmart

and Finally Bleu from petco

Which one would be perfect to breed with Ribbon? I know you all would prolly say the sibling but just wanted you guys opinion

Here they are flaring

Bleu is starting to get some red wash on him. He might have marble gene

Lol first: The egg spot is always present and doesn't mean she's ready to breed. She'll be round with eggs and with breeding bars when she''s ready.

But i would use her brother, i love his colors and his fins. But his back looks off to me. But that's something you can fix later.

Is the breeding bars be visible even with the thick scaling?

I've heard of 3.5 -4month old's being bred but mostly from thai breeders.
I've never had a dragon female so i don't know. Does she still fade and get stress stripes when stressed out? If so then i would assume her breeding bars would show.

Bettas that weren't stunted growth wise by poor water conditions or low quality food are in their breeding prime between 4 and 12 months of age, a decent 8 months of breeding.

Bleu was my second choice. You would get alot of multies though.
