and thus from what other colors/patterns could it be constructed?
Mille fleur and self blue.
red wheaton + columbian + spangling + lavendar (all in homozygous form) = porcelain
Mille fleur is created with columbian, buff, and mottled...I don't believe you can use wheaton and spangled.
Quote:buff is modified red. columbian is modified wheaton. mottled is the same gene that makes spangling.
wouldn't wheaton be modified columbian instead?
But a spangled bird is quite different from a mottled one, so other genes would have to be present on top of the mottling.
what is the difference between spangled and mottled? Wait, isn't spangled just a black tip on a self colored feather, and mille is self/black/white tipped feathers?
Here are examples spangled birds
Quote:the gene for mottling/spangling is the same gene. they affect other genes in different ways. the mottled gene adds a white tip with black seperating it from the base color. on a bb red it becomes spangled. on wheaton it becomes a spangled wheaton. on a black it becomes mottled, on blue it becomes blue mottled. spangled wheaton hens look similar to a millie fluer hen.
Quote:columbian is a gene, wheaton is an allele. the columbian gene modifies whatever allele it is found over, thus columbian over wheaton begets buff columbian.
