    No porcelain roo and no prcelain hen and its crest isn't flat like some you have seen.

    I almost forgot about this one too because she is living in my partridge pen and is laying ,but she is not related to the previous one that is already behaving like a male at 2 1/5 months.

    To me porcelian looks like a dilute partrige as lavender looks like a dilute blue or a splash over diluted ...hint ? I think there is more than one way to skin this cat as is there in ring neck doves. Minus the floppy crest.

    Gosh I hate to be so dumb, but why are these not Splash?
    I can't see the difference.
    Not being hateful just don't understand and would really like to.

    Quote:Isn't splash supposed to be either blue or black on white? If these were splash they wouldn't be show or breeder quality because of the red color coming through? [​IMG] [​IMG] Just venturing a guess [​IMG]
