Gold birchen x buff = poorly marked gold birchen

G b x lavender = black with gold necks

g b x blue = 50/50 blues and blacks all with gold leakage on the necks I expect.

The gold shows through because the Birchen tends to dominate, and birchen makes the gold show around the head and neck.

I think the Gb x wheaton will also give poorly marked g b. Bear in mind that none of these offspring will breed true even though many of them would look like gold birchen.
