    Pastel versus Super

    Okay, so another thread in the Genetics forum got me thinking ...

    Without knowing an ounce of background, what would you call this girl -- a pastel (heterozygous), super pastel (homozygous), or pastel combo? ... And, perhaps most importantly, why?

    I have some knowledge and some thoughts, but I'm very curious to hear others' ideas. Thanks guys!

    Pastel not a Super..

    Here is a Super pastel on a regular pastel not much bigger than it.


    With super pastels the tell is in the black.. Notice how faded and washed out the black is compaired to a normal pastel
    Super


    Pastel, even with great looking pastels with really faded heads the black is the tell


    With supers it's way more pronounced when they are little

    Looks like not many other people are going to reply (FreakieFrog provided a great explanation anyway), soo ...

    I did know for a fact that she is not a super, as she came from a pastel x light WC normal breeding.

    I was curious, though, if others saw what I see in her, which is her strongly faded head and the mottled blushing on her sides.

    After looking at a few, I think she may be a "stonewash" line pastel, and I'm hoping that faded look will combine with other morphs ... I think she'd make some fantastic supers.

    (That super in your 1st pic is a knockout, BTW!!)
