Despite ‘googling’ I have no understanding of the genetic configuration of the colour designated as platinum. I have bred some Barred Splash birds which look identical to birds said to be platinum (the presence of barring seems to prevent the pigmented spots seen so often in splash birds).
I have also heard of a colour called opal. Can you shed some light on this?

Platinum is one dose Blue (Bl) and one dose Dun (Id). The tone of the color is similar to a lot of other diluted colors like lavender, khaki, mauve etc...
