Trust me, you'll catch on, it's contagious. We're here to help answer your questions, so don't be afraid to ask.

Next you will start hearing about Phenotype and Genotype.  Phenotype is what you can see, like when we call your bird an India Blue Silver Pied, because that we can see.  Genotype is the genetic makeup of the bird when you know the heritage of the bird you can quote the genetic makeup of what you can not see.

For example, IF the father of your boy is India Blue Black Shoulder Silver Pied (IBBSSP) then your boy could be India Blue Silver Pied split Black Shoulder.  Or, IF the father was Cameo Silver Pied, your boy would be India Blue Silver Pied split Cameo.
Very well said again, great info Kingbee!
