Looking at the patch notes we see 6 items are used to change the colour of your chocobos plumage. Before jumping in and growing all the things we can work out what items you use to get that majestic as fuck coloured chocobo you'v always wanted.
To do this we look at the colour on a RGB scale, starting from full red and green with no blue to make yellow. This will be a quick guide to what fruit to grow in advance. Please not as we have just got this information it is unknown how many feeds it would take blue to go from 0 to 255, always we can probably assume each feed would be about 50 so I'll guess at 5 feeds for the moment.
The 6 items are as follows
Xelphatol Apple - Red
Mamook Pear - Green
O'ghomoro Berries - Blue
Doman Plum - Red
Valfruit - Green
Ciedalaes Pineapple - Blue
Also remember the Han Lemon resets your chocobo to yellow, this could come useful in some situations. These calculations are from the Desert Yellow sRGB (224, 189, 101). These are just the extremes which work as a good base point, anything in between can be worked out from these points once we have more information.
Valfruit ------ Xelphatol Apple ------ Ciedalaes Pineapple
Doman Plum ------ Mamook Pear ------ Ciedalaes Pineapple (Remove Blue Hue)
O'Ghomoro Berries ------ Valfruit ------ Xelphatol Apple
O'Ghomoro Berries ------ Valfruit ------ Doman Plum
Doman Plum ------ Valfruit ------ Ciedalaes Pineapple
O'Ghomoro Berries ------ Xelphatol Apple ------ Mamook Pear
As of the time of writing it is unclear if black and white are correct and it may be the case that they are the wrong way round. I.E. if you used the formula to create white you'd end up with black
As we gather more information I will continue to update this thread.
Edit Should mention that this conclusion was come to using the RGB scale on photoshop, there is a chance this could be backwards but we'll see soon enough.
2nd Edit The base colour is actually Desert Yellow, this is sRGB (224, 189, 101). Thanks Nakomaru for the heads up. Also Formatting
3rd Edit It appears we may have a translation error with Doman plums and they may instead lighten blue rather than red. Take this with a grain of salt at the moment. More info can be found on this post. http://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comments/2e106j/possible_translation_error_in_the_new_chocobo/
