    Hey!
    so I have a lot of questions about mottling and some other genetic related questions. Thank you in advance for reading and also thanks for any answer i get!

    1.Is there any way to be sure a specific breed/color has the mottling factor (for example could be mille fleur or something else)?
    2.Is there maybe a list somewhere with every breed/color that has the mottling gene?
    3. Specifically does the chamois appenzeller Spitzhaube have the mottling gene, or is that something else? Does this always apply to the color chamois?
    4. tolbunt= mottling + gold laced right? So would mixing gold laced sebrights with chamois appenzeller bantam spitzhauben (or any chamois chicken) result in some tolbunt chickens in F2?
    5. What would you use to try and create tolbunt sebrights? Rosecomb bantams?
    6. Im not expecting an answer to this but anyone got just about any information how different forms of crest come out after mixing ? for example appenzeller spitzhauben have a small pointy crest that doesnt hang to the sides at all. While pavlovskaja have a bigger one that spreads to all sides but still seems to allow for more vision than polish. Since i think crests are autosomal dominant it could be a mix of both crests in the offspring right? And then F1 some will have pavlov some will have appenzeller and some will be mixed?

    I Can answer some of my own questions after asking somewhere else.
    3. Chamois does not contain the mottled gene, instead it is one of the possible expressions of the Pg-Gene.
    4. No, in F1 it would result in chamois chickens and in F2 it would split 50%/50% into the original colors.
