    Not positive, but with most, if not every, species albinos happen. That trait can be passed on to the next generation.

    Either albino or another white type mutation.

    I'm getting all my bobwhite mutations from a well know breeder out of Louisiana. That's what he told me, the white come from the snowflake mutation.
