    Would lav x porcelain offspring just be a more lavender looking porcelain?

    Quote:Porcelain is a combination of Lavender dillution and Mille Fleur color/pattern (if I remember correctly). In other words, imagine a Mille Fleur, but wherever you see black, change to gray...and wherever you see gold, change to lemon (basically). Breeding the two will give you the same results as breeding Black X Mille Fleur, except with the addition of the Lavender gene. You won't get a "more lavender looking porcelain" because porcelains are already Lavender.

    Since I'm still a "chicken-genetics work-in-progress" I'll have to wait until Illia wakes up to find out if I'm correct.

    I thought porcelain was lav and isabella? Not into the color, and for sure am not a genetics whiz! [​IMG] So, c'mon Illia!

    Quote:"Isabel" is essentially a lavender diluted buff.
    Porcelain is essentially a lavender diluted Mille Fleur.
    Pearl is essentially a lavender diluted Mottled.

    Quote:I believe that you will get Self Blue ("lavender") fowl, some will be split for pied/mottled others will not.

    *Split= Carrying the gene but not showing it.

    this is correct... you'll just get more lavenders... but all of them will be split to mottled... they will also have the Ee^b locust... so some might have a bit of brown leakage... but not a lot... they will also be split for columbian... or at least coco+...

    Porcelain is either "Mille Fleur" or Isabel Mille Fleur (lav + mille fleur/spangled)


    Lavender x Porcelain, assuming you mean Isabel Porcelain = A bunch of Lavender birds with lots of random leakage, penciling, etc.

    Lavender x Porclain, assuming you mean a Mille Fleur type spangled bird = A bunch of black birds with lots of random leakage, penciling, etc.



    Isabel usually refers to Lavender/Self-Blue diluting the gold color of a bird.
