Re: platinium red rump
- Hello ??
> Hi I have a LutinoPlatinium split opline possiable split blue cockThe reason why we call it a LutinoPlatinum without a gap between the
names, is because Platinum is a multiple allele of the lutino gene. This
means it behaves as a partial copy of the lutino and the bird you have has
one lutino gene and one platinum gene, as well as one opaline gene (and
maybe a blue one)

are unrelated mutations.
your potential results are:-
LutinoPlatinum/Opaline cock x Blue Opaline hen
= Green/Lutino/Opaline/Blue, Green/Platinum/Opaline/Blue,
Opaline/Lutino/Blue and Opaline/Platinum/Blue cocks
+ Lutino/Blue, Lutino Opaline/Blue, Platinum/Blue and Platinum Opaline/Blue
If your cock is indeed split for Blue then all the above will be
duplicated in Blue series.
Please note that the sons produced cannot be identified as to
whether they are split for Lutino or split for Platinum.
