If it's a recessive het, you'd expect:

75% "possible het" - there's a 2 out of 3 chance they are, but you can't tell which are which.
25% visual recessive.

The specific ones you've named:

Hypo het patternless X hypo het patternless =

18.5% Normal not hypo poss. het patternless
6.25% Patternless not carrying hypo
37.5% Hypo poss. het patternless
12.5% Patternless carrying Hypo
18.5% Super Hypo poss. het patternless
6.25% Patternless carrying Super Hypo

Normals het Albino and Blizzard, you'd get:

1 in 16 Blazing Blizzard
3 in 16 Blizzard possible het albino
3 in 16 Albino possible het blizzard
9 in 16 normal possible het blizzard and/or albino

Just to add, if a baby leo is 'het' for 2 or 3 things, is it just pot luck as to what it may turn out like (out of the 3 things it is het for) and could it still just turn out to be normal......or does it depend on what colour/morph the parents are :)

If a baby leo is only HET for a recessive gene, then it isn't pot luck at all - it won't display the gene, because it doesn't carry the required two copies.

It does depend completely on the morph of the parents.

For example, if I breed a Blizzard het albino to an Albino het Blizzard, the normal-looking babies will be het for Albino and Blizzard, the blizzard-looking babies are het for albino and the albino-looking babies are het for blizzard. Only the Blazing Blizzards are visually BOTH genes.
