Another advantage to breeding with a locality male first, the head patterns of the hets may tell you if the female is locality.

For example - many of the young from my Antioch locality male and Amel albino are clearly not Antioch locality head patterns.

So you could rule out that she is locality amel that generation as well. Even if she mates with amel and produces all amel offspring, that still doesn't rule out that she's locality - it only tells you the amel is caused by same gene pair.
