That is pretty much what I would have expected generally.... I was just
wondering how recessive the traits were.  As an interesting aside, I used
to have an albino male Kibensis (tropical fish often found in aquariums)
that when crossed with a normal brown female would produce all albino
offspring, which to my understanding should be impossible when following
the rules of albinism. Sort of showed me just how much difference there
could be to what was "supposed" to happen, and what actually did.

Now I just gots to gets me some of them variable seeds (Just to check the
genetics of course!!  Honest!!) <grin>
