It's a mystery where the Whites below are coming from. I am getting them from a pair of Tiger Grizzles and 2 pairs of "Pencil" or Undergrizzles. All the pairs are related but have pedigrees that go way back and there is no mention of Whites on any of the Fehrholz birds pedigrees. There's also no chance of cross breeding going on. One suspicion is it's related to the "Pencil" factor in these birds that causes the Bull Eyes and White coloration. Another possibility is Recessive White is way back in their ancestry further than the pedigrees list.  It's a fact that Mr Fehrholz in Germany has Whites like these as well.
