I read in Grant Brereton’s 21st Century Poultry Breeding that one copy of recessive white was used to produced the proper lemon hackle color in male-line Partridge Wyandottes. Because of the nature of recessive white, naturally breeding two proper “male-line” birds gave you 50 percent “lemon hackle” 25 percent gold hackle, and 25 percent white birds. The female male-line Wyandottes were light in color as well.
So: l wondered, are there any other examples where recessive white dilutes phaeomelanin in its heterozygous state?
As always @nicalandia :)

Is he talking about Red Pyle? The only thing I can replicate with Dominant White on partridge is Red Pyle, unless there's something I'm missing.
Looks like you missed understanding or reading her post.
The question was about recessive white in its heterozygous state.

@Amer I've never saw what you're describing.

According to Grant Brereton, the dilution is caused by recessive white.

Way back when I had my first CCL some carried RW.
I was trying like crazy to ID which had it and there was no difference I ever found with which carried it and which didn't by sight.
Maybe the difference was because they had the cream dilute genes or maybe it effects partridge different then duckwing. IDK.
