    Lol, yes it gets pretty confusing but it came together for me once I started breeding paints and saw what they can throw. Splits usually have leakage.

    I don't like silkies much. Sorry, but it's true. This is one of the reasons. The unnecessary colors!

    This year I’ve decided the best way for me to figure out genetics is breed and see what happens. Give me a mental image to apply all the techno jargon words too!
