I guess I won't know for at least 3 years! haha
Unless my snow is het hypo, I won't know if the okeetee is till he's bred to either a known hypo or one of his kids, and his kids are stubborn little &*^%'s who won't come out of the egg! hahaha

:I've got a proven het for hypo whose belly is all faded out. But then so is his dad's (looks the same) and Dad is NOT het hypo.

:Meanwhile I've got an amber and charcoal ghost... with both of them, you would never suspect they were hypos just by looking at the belly.

:Also, the offspring from a het hypo to a non-het non-hypo were split down the middle in "lightness."

:I've seen evidence both ways: no "proof" that hypo cannot affect the phenotype when het, and some correlations have been noticed in some lines.

:It's not predictable enough at this point to feel safe saying "this one's het for hypo, you can tell by looking at it."

:Nobody has sat down and done specific experiments to try to prove anything. Until then, it will only be speculation, and maybe a pipe dream. But at this point it's still a possibility.

:It would be nice if we could figure out what's going on. ;-)
