    Assuming you mean Self-blue Porcelain -


    You'd need to start off a little different than the original Porcelain by going with either Columbian (but introduce the gold gene) or Partridge Wyandottes. (but get rid of the mahogany)

    Then introduce Lavender and Mottling from another breed, preferably one or two that are closest to the Wyandotte's type, and go from there.

    For Brown Porcelian such as European, you can use speckled Sussex for the color and pattern and mottling, Preferably mated over Buff Columbian, Partridge will work as well.

    For Self Blue Porcelian use the Bird from above, cross with Lav. Orp for Lavendar color, breed f1xF1 keep only Self Blue with Mottling (Pearle) Cross your F2 (Pearle) with Buff Columbian, Breed a F1xF1, You will get some Millie Fluer Pattern, Some Porcelian Pattern, and some other odd ball birds with and without mottling..
