Ok it seems people are understanding the platinum gene better and better these days. From what I gather- the gene is "turned on" so to speak by the leu gene. Right? So my question is this. If a platinum het is paired with a 33% leu het and they produce a platinum... Would that leu be proven as a carrier of the leu gene? They have to have it 100% to be passed on to make a platinum...right? dunno

Ok
The Platinum gene is not necessarily turned on by the Leu Gene. Anita has produced a platinum with no leu gene at all. I have just produced a platinum and am not sure if there is Leu in the gene. There possibly could be, but the mother is a 66% and the dad is a 25% with his father never having produced Leu. Two 100% het for platinum will produce a platinum whether there is a Leu gene or not.

The silverbelle Platinum line has no Leu in it at all either. So, yeah, it's a tricky one. Still trying to make sense of it!
