    ok...my female isn't a pearl...this is what so confused me
    about it....the whiteface being a recessive i
    understand....but thanks, the pearls are beautiful...the
    normal grey is so dark it's almost black...very pretty.
    anyway, i love them all i just thought i'd get some pieds out
    of her since she is so heavy pied herself...thanks,jill
