Consistent Mating

A Consistent Mating happens when every one of the offspring in a mating are legal offspring after the unknown parent genes have been filled in for this breeding.

In other words, the genotype of the offspring determine the unknowns of the parents.

For example, if one Parent is A- B- C- D- (Castor) and the other is aa bb C- dd (Lilac), then using an albino — — cc — as an offspring would mean that both parents would HAVE to be carrying the REW allele. That would mean that NONE of the other babies could be Chinchilla Cchd or Californian Ch.
