    People have been asking a lot of genetics questions recently, as they've gotten new chicks. But there isn't a genetics section in the articles that I've noticed.

    I've been looking, and the genetics articles all seem to be posted in random places. (usually Member pages, sometimes hatching and incubating, etc.) I was wondering if a separate category might be created? I'd really like to see one, (especially with articles on egg color inheritance and pattern inheritance.)

    I'm not sure how it would work, mind you--would the pre-created ones remain where they are, or be moved?

    Thanks. This was somewhat triggered by our discussion last night, as I'm sure you've guessed.

    Interesting idea, thanks for posting it!

    We try to strike a tricky balance between too few and too many categories, so we'll need to review and discuss this a bit (@sumi ) and see if it makes sense to split these off into another category, and if so, when.

    I have an idea.
    If you happen to come across and article on genetics could you post a link to it here in this thread. I will be on the look out for them starting tonight.
    Let's see if we can gather enough of them in one spot to see if there is even enough good info out there to create a special section for them.

    Deal?


    (I am going to keep editing my next post to include each new link I find)


    Anyone else wanna play this game?
    Please feel free to play along!

    I need to see if I can fix some of the tables in a few of the articles I listed above.
    Or maybe @Wickedchicken6 or @casportpony can do it?
