    Can anyone recommend me some good books. I am interested in finding out about breeds and gentics of colours, esp changing the colours of chickens (mainly Faverolles) without changing the characteristics of the breed.

    Thanks!

    Thanks! Will look them up! Any authors or titles easy to understand and follow? I'm trying my best to remember biology from school with dominant and recessive genes!
