    Dont quote me but I read that Isabele is the dilution of gold plumage to a light creme color... done by introducing lavender...? Correct me if I'm wrong...

    Isabelle is a lavender Crele. A Crele is a partridge/cuckoo. Lavender affects colours thusly:
    Black is lavender, red becomes cream and gold looks sort of pale lemon.

    No, an Isabel *cuckoo* is a lavender Crele.
    Isabel is just a fancy game given to a diluted color by lavender. Usually buff with lavender or something like that. You can have Isabel without having any partridge or cuckoo.

    They are rather expensive :( My 2 cost me $240 and thats a good deal usally they are around $150 to $200 A chick and most people have minimums :( Thats the only reason I've never bought any. The minimums are usally like 4 - 6..and i had money to pay but I just never bought them.
