They are pretty rare, but probably several times commoner than most people realise because if they are a chimera without a colour marker the true nature of the beast is not obvious.

It is merely a wild guess, but based on posts on this forum somewhere between 1:500 and 1:10,000 seems reasonable for spontaneous colour identifiable chimeras.
