Good Question, Really. First and foremost. Because that has been the reality of these type morphs. A fun fact that gets lost in all your argumentative posts is, there are always two important areas, the academic understanding of science, in this case genetic coding and the product. The product is what actually is produced. If you hatch out ten Luceys or ten albinos, or ten melanistics, in each case there will be variation amoungst the ten.
Why is a good question and is a bit complicated. First, genes are not stand alone. That has been proven. They are influenced by other genes(chemically)
And, the fun one, most folks do not understand how genetics works. Simply put, genes do not do anything, other then tell the body what to do(hormones to produce) its those hormones that actually produce a product. Theres a long road between genetic codes and the results.
Also in this case luceys, White is a equal combination of all the colors. Any slight variation in amounts of each color effects the quality of the white that's produced. To crisp up white, you add small amounts of blue or even black. A small example.
It was explained to me that genes send bursts of signals or a defined period of time. Some for short periods, some for long periods, etc. It was also explained to me that genes are not all created equal. That is, they send the same information, just slightly differently.
Whats important to understand, while academic genetics is one thing and is what we have. There are far more arguments amoung genetic PHD's then arguments between you and I. Most of the genetic tools we use at this level are teaching tools. That is a base understanding to get us started. At higher levels of genetic understanding, its not so clear cut.
All in all, its back to this, where we live, It happens. No matter what the genetics are suppose to do, it happens in practice and that is what is important.
