You know, I think you are right about that. I didn't even consider dominant pied once I had clearflight in my head. The separated patch on her belly is in exactly the place it would be if she were dominant pied. Either way they are both dominant mutations, and more similar than I realized when a dominant is lightly pied.

Thanks for your opinion here - even though I'm not a "breeder" I really like knowing as best as possible the actual mutation of my birds.
