    brown red x blue partridge = blue patterned gold-necked/birchen.... is this the same as lemon blue?

    Also, what is lemon pyle? is that the gold on white (splash I guess?)

    i swear I always have a million questions about color genetics and then once I think i have it figure out I think of a new project and teh questions start all over again.

    thanks guys [​IMG]

    No.
    Lemon Blue doesn't have Blue Partridge in them.
