    I think the color is beautiful. I have read on BYC that some of you have Porcelain Projects and saw some pictures. I wanted to gather these pictures on one thread. I know breeding for a different color is complicated but what colors are you working with to produce a Porcelain. Just curious. Thanks!

    True porcelain requires two copies of lav and mottled and also columbian, e^Wh and/or e^b. Porcelain in silkies does not yet have mottled.
