Who can explaine what crossing color phases will produce, example if you cross a white bird with a sparkly what do you get. Im sure this has been addressed or asked a million times just looking for anyone with solid knowledge on crossing colors or what traits will show up and what wont ect

Sparkly is already a cross pansy over pharaoh so when crossed with a white you would likely get a lot of possibilities including whites, sparklies, panda and/or tuxedos, pharaoh, and pansies

All color patterns can be sparkley... would be very interesting, if white would develope dark sparkles or if it would be white sparkles on white ground 🙈 😂
Ghost sparkley!
I was wondering the same thing, so you have what looks like a recessive white and when crossed with something else, the sparkley shows up unexpectedly.

Also interesting, what would be the visual differences between the het and homozygous sparkley offspring produced. Would homozygous revert to pharaoh type sparkley, or would it be white over white. I wish I could find someone doing this research and publishing it.

I was just using sparkly as an example, I guess the real question is who has examples of crosses and what you get when it happens? Like what colors are dominant or what colors dont show up if you cross certain things

This is the champions-league of breeding. I cannot tell ... I just have one example for sure, as I breeded them by myself.
Italian and Tibetan results in Rosetta. Both are dominant to wildpattern, but Gold ist incomplete which results in an intermediate mature, where Tibetan is bit more intense.

The Italian on the pic is the father and the Tibetan-Tux the mother, the Rosetta in the middle their daughter (I do not breed with them anymore, just collecting eggs for eating... which I should do now 😂 ... So no worries about incest)

Also a good example of the unpredictablity of breeding Pie Balds .... The mother is a 40/60% Tux and the daughter just has a small white beard.

Edit: as Italian is geneticly 50% Gold (Manchurian) and 50% Wildtype (Pharaoh) I had also a real dark male, where the Wildtype allel gene hits the Tibetan gene ... .
