Designing: Filigree





Bullet; White Not to be confused with barring, filigree is when the feathers are edged in a different color than the base.
Filigree resembles lacing in chickens. Here are some real life examples:……………

Bullet; White In your ketucari's genotype, filigree is denoted by the letters "nFil" (heterozygous) or "FilFil" (homozygous).
Bullet; White In its heterozygous form, filigree has a pass rate of 65%. Homozygous filigree has a 85% pass rate.



Filigree can be any color, even vibrant colors. You may use up to two colors in filigree.


If the ketucari has the filigree gene, it should be visible somewhere on the body where the lineart denotes feathers, such as the crest, shoulders, and tail tip. Like any other marking, it must be immediately recognizable.

Interaction with Other Markings

Bullet; White All markings can be layered under or over filigree.
Bullet; White Filigree can be influenced by radiance.


Here are some small accents you can add to your designs to make them more unique!

• Filigree may have a subtle gradient like below:

• Filigree may make a double line on the feathers such as the double laced barnevelder. Be careful not to make this resemble scale marks or eye rings.
