Well, apologies if I'd use incorrect as the word, but, at least from what I've been told, it is not what we're going by anymore. At least, it isn't what I am going by at the moment. Not sure why, just my opinion based on observations, but I'd imagine it is because no one seems to have birds close to it, and everyone is going by what they've been for a while - lacing.
When I first got into Tolbunts I saw the standard and noticed no US breeders/stock had the black blobs (versus lacing) and asked the breeder of which I got my birds about it, and if my arriving stock would follow the standard. I was told it would (it didn't) and that they are indeed breeding by it. After that I've been told otherwise, which makes sense personally, so, I at least go with the lacing standard. Which, I know, isn't online and available, but is pretty straight-forward.
What I am finding is..... like you Illia "I have been told" is a pretty common response. Maybe it is just me, but I don't believe "what I have been told" ......I like to find out what is really true. I have been doing this research only to gather knowledge of the breed. The Standard published on the US Polish Club appears to consider lacing a defect. Probably because of the GP influence. If everyone continues to do their own thing this variety will be pretty mixed up in short order.
I don't raise them, I am only researching this because my APA Committee has been approached re admission to the APA SOP. It does not appear this will be possible anytime soon. The imports have been here since 2000 and IMO the breed is going backwards instead of forward. Too bad, since it is a really pretty variety.
