    Ok, I have read a few posts and people were talking abount what colors to cross to get the 'Porcelain' coloring. I was curious to see what the general concensus from everyone on this subject. What two colors would you need to cross in order to achieve the porcelain coloring on a bird?

    I figured that would be part of it. I just heard everything from partridge/buff, lavender/buff, black/buff..... [​IMG] Thanks for your input [​IMG]

    You need millefleur and lavender and at least 2 generations.
    A mottled lavender would be better but I guess they are quite rare.

    The only 2 colors that produce porcelain directly are porcelain and porcelain.
