I´ve heard some people are working with them and I was wondering if they could post pics of how their projects are doing. I thought it was impossible to have mottled ameraucanas but I guess I was wrong
I have not worked with mottled ameraucanas but its possible to produce them by using black ameraucanas with a similar breed with the mottling gene and then do a F1xF1 and select for the best looking mottled birds...
There are a few breeders working on mottled and looking for new breeders to help.Check the posts on the ameraucana club forum.Exchanger leghorn is the pied gene.All these colors have the same leg color issue as barring.The erminett gene is like the dominate form of pied.I have this gene but have been unable to find much info on it.
You can make a mottled ameraucana. The mottling gene is similar to barring gene. The mottling gene will prevent the addition of black pigment to the epidermis due to the E locus allele . It does not effect the melanin added to the demis by dermal melanin.
