Aclearflight has a completely clear color on chest. The tail and wing feathers may have different colors after any molt. If the frosting appears on the wing shoulders then it becomes a frosted dutch pied.
To prove clear flight vs dominant pied the clearflight must produce a DEC or it is a dominant pied. Frosting may take a long time to show on a dutch pied.
Lovely bird. The yellow face effects the body color. Jo Ann
Thank you So to make sure I'm understanding what you're saying: Hermes is a Dutch pied and not a dominant pied, clearflight, or a frosted (at least not as seen now) because in order to be a clearflight he must have solid body color on his chest, whereas a dutch pied can have patches of color? And we'll know more about his mutation if or when he has chicks to see what colors he produces. I've had a hard time finding a whole lot of information on the Dutch pied but the articles I have found were a little confusing. Would you mind highlighting the main characteristics of a Dutch pied? Thank you so much for your help and patience!
