    nested switch statements error

    I'm getting the control cannot fall through to another case error and I'm not seeing how to fix it. What am I missing?
    Code:
      public void agouti_color_steel()
            {
                switch (offspring[4])
                {
                    case 1:
                     if ((charlie == true) & (dilute == false))
                        {
                            color = "Charlie Steel Chestnut";
                            gtype = "EnEnA-B-C-D-E/s-VV";
                            colorname();
                        }
    
                        else if ((broken == true) & (dilute == false))
                        {
                            color = "Broken Steel Chestnut";
                            gtype = "EnenA-B-C-D-E/s-VV";
                            colorname();
                        }
    
                        else if (dilute == false)
                        {
                            color = "Steel Chestnut";

    All case sections MUST end with break. Fall-through is never permitted. The reason you can't find the spot where you've missed a break, is because your indentation is a disaster.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}
