I have really been enjoying reading the Genetic thread but it is quite a bit over my head in some places. Can we have a place to ask just the basics for us new peabrains? I am trying to get my brain around a couple of the basics and think I understand but would like a little confirmation. Last breeding season I had three breeding pens; A pen with IB x IB, no questions there except for some color variances which I may ask about later. A pen with IB Pied WE cock (I suspect split Cameo), and IB, IB Pied, and Cameo hens. And a pen with a IBBS cock (I suspect carry Cameo split), with IB, and Cameo hens. Do I understand right that a Cameo hen will not produce Cameo chicks unless the cock is also carrying the Cameo also? If not then my cocks are carrying Cameo. If they can then my assumption is wrong and the cocks do not really carry Cameo. Does BS work the same way? I produced some BS chicks but I do not have any BS hens. Do my Cameo hens hide BS in them to produce BS chicks? Another basic question, sorry if it is too much in one post, but if you cross two single factor WE birds will that produce double factor chicks?
