Using the information you provided below, the numbers then come out to be 50% Hond, 43.75% Flor, and 6.25% Cali.
:The original Jurassic milk breeding was between a Honduran Milk and a "Lemon King" the Lemon king has been around for 15 years and is popular in eastern US breeding circles.This started way back because so many herpers in Florida found it easy to breed the albino Calif king to their WC Florida kings. The Lemon King came from breeding back the albino 50/50 repeatedly back to the florida king. This was done to breed the california king out and each time lowered the percentage of calif. king while keeping the recessive albino trait. The percentage is probably a lot lower that 10%. The marketing term "Lemon king" came out after the albinos were bred back 3x to the florida king...it was because they picked up a bright flouresant yellow coloration from the floridana that was not in the original amel. Calif. kings.
:Andy Barr did the original breeding with a tangerine Hondurans to his Lemon king male to produce Jurassic Milks.
:I have also seen Andy's Lemon king breeder and it almost looks like a pure albino Floridana.
::I'm pretty sure that it is not possible to have 10% of anything when crossing species. If you breed a cal king to a florida king, the offspring is 50% of each. Then, breed that snake to a Honduran and it is 50% honduran, 25% cal king, 25% florida king. Just wanted to clear that up.
