Do you have a full history of the parents?

Most laced Polish in Australia that I am aware of are recent creations and the colour genes have been brought in from other breeds. Some have used wyandotte which is likely to have brought in recessive white.

If you breed your self white back to a parent who also carries recessive white you are likely to a mixture of both out of the mating. If you don't want to breed whites you'll have to remove them from the flock. If you've bred one you are likely to get more from the same parent birds.

If i breed the white pullet to a WCB would i get 50% of each colour??
No i dont know full history of the birds. I was told, as im now third owner of the Chamois roo pictured above that he was a project roo to an elderly man who recently passed away.the second owner only had him a week til i received him. The Chamois has a white tailand since posting the original post ive notice over time hes got a couple more black spots in his crest head feathers. From the info ive provided can anyone work out what the elderly man was trying to achieve from him? Do i breed my buff lace and gold laced hens with him?
Thankyou chicken07 your info was most helpful.
I'll be putting up a new post about the new polish flock i purchased and would appreciate both your help.
Kind Regards
