    No question is a stupid question. I don't know the answer but I would guess yes.

    You don't need to do it to introduce Porcelain to an LF bird, though - In reality, you just need to work on Lavender and Millie Fleur/Spangled/Tolbunt varieties. It will take a couple generations, but that's basically what Porcelain is. [​IMG]
