I am no expert on wry tail. I do know that with a recessive trait both parents can look normal but still have the gene for that trait. A bird would have to get the wry tail gene from both parents in order for it to show. In your rooster's case both parents, rooster and hen, had the gene. This is why the woman could breed these birds for years and not have it show in her birds. The only way it would show is if both parents had the hidden trait.post #2503 of 26712/25/16 at 6:24ampost #2504 of 26712/25/16 at 6:29amQuote:
If what I am reading is correct the lady's rooster has the wry tail gene and at least one hen has it too.post #2505 of 26712/25/16 at 7:14ampost #2506 of 26712/25/16 at 7:50ampost #2507 of 26712/25/16 at 7:59ampost #2508 of 26712/25/16 at 8:22ampost #2509 of 26712/25/16 at 8:48amQuote:
Every chick from this pairing would have the wry tail. BUT There are many past posts on the subject. Apparently it does not act as a normal recessive trait would. Type in the "advanced search" box at the top of this page, "WHAT CAUSES WRY TAIL" and sites will come up for you to look through.post #2510 of 26712/25/16 at 2:51pm
