Light sussex is the same as Ermine.
Light brahmas are the same as columbian.
There is a colour called Ermine, ie Ermine Faverolles. Ermine, Light (as in Sussex) & Columbian (as in Wyandottes) all describe the same colour pattern.

As a hererozygote is white with a pattern of black spots, white when homozygous.
I thought the white one with black spots was "erminette" (similar to exchequer)? Is there a difference between erminette and ermine?
