The best link I know of, a little heady but explains all variation and genes involved, skip the upper stuff and go down to the bottom where it explains the modification of different coat colors, they explain the different colors of yellow, greying patterns, and yes even Silver labs.

You must have not looked at the 2nd one. It shows silver factored black!!!!!!!! WTF
Not too sure I would refer to a silver breeder's color chart...

ROFL. I don't think I'd worry about the "dilutes" too much myself. Good enough to know the black, yellow, chocolate & pigment stuff methinks.

Nothing inaccurate on the shared website for coat color, it just includes the dilution gene. Draw your punnet squares, if need be, it'll all check out.


Me either but dude said he didn't see silver lol. Heck I can't figure out the 3 real colors(prob get flamed by a silver owner for that) now they are talking silver factored blacks? geesh.
The "silver factored" are your basic BYC that carry the dilution gene (Dd); nothing new, they were around before the full dilutes (dd) as it takes a factored dog to make a recessive trait like that be shown. Same is true for other recessive genes like yellow or chocolate, they are carried as recessive color "factors."

Not trying to high jack this thread, but i went to the site for one of the DNA testing Labs and it looked like it requires two test or more to determine the recessive coat colors. Is this correct?

Terri,

That's the way I read it too. I had the need to have a black male checked to see if he is carrying the yellow factor and checked out the various websites for companies offering to test Lab color. It seems that you just get the results of one locus per test. However, you may know the status of the other sites or maybe are just concerned about one.

Yes, they test one color locus at a time. A couple of the laboratories do give a 50% or more discount for each test after the first one.
