yes jon has lf white , all orders are on hold til next year from my understanding of his site .... this is why i got these from pips&peeps , but i still plan to order some from jon as well .......
I am curious about your posting on the ameraucana thread tho , where you said all the good white have a blue or grey tint , idk if i used the exact wording but any pure white birds i have ever known off didnt have any other colors except the yellow under coloring ..... pips&peeps has pics posted of her chicks and birds and i didnt notice any kind of blemishes at all , just the normal yellow undercoloring
I have mostly discussed this with Faverolles breeders about the different genes behind white but I think it applies to ameraucana as well. If I remember correctly someone posted a picture of a white ameraucana chick they hatched or had shipped from Jean and it was grey and Jean said it was just a sign of better white on their feathers when they come in. I will see if I can find that post it must have been a while back.
hmmm , i got some b/b/s that colored up that way but never a white bird , so far but when these hatch i guess we will see , now a white EE has color leakage for sure which i have some of them , but like my white roo in the pic he never leaked any other colors even except the yellow under color when he was a chick and he was snow ball white as an adult
