How is it you always have the coolest posts Dina! (If I didn't know better I might think it is a strange expression of an almond allele ... but I know Dina is to clued up to not be 100% sure)

It is very unusual for mosaics to have mosaic offspring, isn't it. Maybe there is something to the theory that mosaicism can be inherited...

Due to sex linkage Can't we rule Almond out if hens are being produced by hens that carry the same look.

thats a mosaic? ok to me it looks like a yellow almond grizzle???, i thought mosaics had to have a distinct patern of one color, and a distinct pattern and color of another, this is grizzle looking to me...very pretty tho

Yes, Chimera would be it as that can be passed on. But I also believe some "chimeras" may be a recessive allele in the almond family or perhaps even related to recessive red seeing as though many, many, many of them involve recessive red or yellow as part of their coloration. Or, perhaps a new type of bronze that only partially effects the bird, like pied but instead of white it is bronze. Since bronze can look as bold as recessive red and yellow. I wish I had some of those middle eastern "mosaics" to play with.

From what I saw here in Romania, the most common mosaics are non-recessive red with recessive red patches or vice versa. Some of them are from families or breeds that don’t have recessive red in them and this kind of mosaic is not an inherited trait to offsprings. For this reason, I can say there are somatic mutations that shut off both wild type allele of recessive red locus in some areas. This means the action of recessive red gene is the same the action of absence of wild type allele of Rec red locus and the rec red gene is a gene that do nothing.

The father of mosaic squab is Botosani tumbler (hetero pencil and hetero rec white; hetero rec red; hetero dilute):

Mosaic mother now (she will go whiter with every moult because of bronze of Orbetean highfylers):

The mother's parents are Orbeteans highflyers:

The hen could be mosaic also.
