    Current Color:Marsh Green
    Desired Color: Soot Black

    If you have any hints or tips to Help me get to soot Black I will really be indebted to you.
    I haven't helped anyone with chocobo dye in ages and I was going to suggest using the FFXIV Chocobo Colour Calculator by Chopski but it seems it's offline. Chopski if you're still reading any of these threads you should get it working again. It was super helpful!

    This means that we're going to have to do some napkin math. It also looks like the original RGB sheet is gone so I'm going to use AttacKat's RGB Colors (again assuming they haven't been changed).

    Chocobo Fruit

    Plum - Lightens red hues but at the same time increases green and blue hues.
    Apple - Deepens red hues but at the same time lessens green and blue hues.

    Valfruit - Lightens green hues but at the same time increases red and blue hues.
    Pear - Deepens green hues but at the same time lessens red and blue hues.

    Pineapple - Lightens blue hues but at the same time increases red and green hues.
    Berries - Deepens blue hues but at the same time lessens red and green hues.

    Plum (-5, +5, +5)
    Apple (+5, -5, -5)
    Valfruit (+5, -5, +5)
    Pear (-5, +5, -5)
    Pineapple (+5, +5, -5)
    Berries (-5, -5, +5)

    *Note: Using the +/5 integer for easier calculations (this is an approx.).

    -------------------------------------------

    Starting Colour: Marsh Green
    RGB Estimation: 52R, 56G, 34B

    Desired Colour: Soot Black
    RGB Estimation: 45R, 43G, 36B


    Napkin Math
    This is based on the +/5 integer for easier calculations. Focus on getting 1 value at a time to the desired colour range (I started with G below which also moved R), then move on to your next value (I focused on bringing the B back down while keeping R/G stable).

    2 Berries (-10, -10, +10): 42, 46, 44
    1 Apple ( +5, -5, -5): 47, 41, 39 (You could try to stop after the Apple, it might still get you into Soot Black range.)
    1 Pear ( -5, +5, -5): 42, 46, 34 <- End RGB Value

    -------------------------------------------

    You could attempt to stop after 2 Berries + 1 Apple. This feed combo might still trigger Soot Black. The differences between adding 1 pear aren't huge jumps in numbers, approx. 2 -3 points, but I was just trying to do a bit of fine tuning. No guarantee this will break your loop but... for science!

    Just to expand a bit on what LadyVal said above, none of the speciality dyes exist yet for your chocbo. So not just metallics but Pure White/Black and all pastels are unavailable.

    Damn it all, the Shale Brown algorithm on http://ffxivchocobo.com/en is off!
    Followed the calculator completely and ended up with Aldgoat Brown.
    Now my chocobo looks just kind of... Sweaty rather than a silky, smokey silver.

    It is not that the algorithm is wrong. The thing you have to realize anytime you are dying a bird is that you can get "good" and "poor" procs on the food. there is also the question of whether you were alternating food or not. If you were not alternating you could have over saturated one color and got off in that manner. You just have to now change the start color to your current color to see what additional feeding is needed.

    There's a random element. Recalculate after color changes and keep going. Will eventually hit right color. Think took me 6-8 sessions to get right color on old account
