I have always loved variegated and wanted to work with it because of its volatile phenotypical nature. It never ceases to amaze me how a barely expressive variegated could produce a variegated that is nearly show table ready in expression, and vice versa.
Alas, my variegated line had some big kinks to work out. The females are a bit too roudy for my liking, and they can be aggressive in their displays for dominance. I have taken a step back from variegateds as a stand alone project, and have managed to mesh the gene into my Texel and Brindles in hopes to fix the temperament and have more submissive females.
