Now you are just making yourself seem silly.moustress said:I don't believe there is a splashed gene or locus, just the effects of some other dilution, probably c^h and c^ch.
And that's called splashed. You and I have gone over this a hundred times. Two non-PEW c-dilutes combined with Spl/* but no white spotting is called splashed. You cannot simply invent your own words and phrases to describe what everybody else uses standard terms for. That would be like insisting on calling a poodle a curlydog and talking about the curlydog factor. While it may contain some truth in a very broad sense, it's deliberately confusing and leaves people who are not necessarily acquainted with mouse (or dog) genetics grossly misinformed.moustress said:BTW, it is possible to see the effect of the 'tri' gene on a mouse with no white markings, but the colors do not pool in those cases.
How did I ever deny it? I specifically said, as did Jack, that 3 "ingredients" are necessary for a tricolor or 2 "ingredients" if you just want a splashed mouse. The mouse must have the splashed gene, a non-full-color c-dilute and white spotting for tri or without white spotting for a splashed mouse. That's what I've been saying the entire time. Maybe you misread?moustress said:On the one hand you say splashed is a necessary part of creating a splashed or tri mousie, and then you deny it by your own argument.
