Quote:they have a Diluting gene that affects the boys since they have 2 shots of the same diluting gene, but hens look plain barred because they have only one shot of that gene

I found it..

its Sex Linked Dilute B^Sd, homozygous B^Sd/B^Sd males are white and Heterozygous B^Sd look light Barred, like above pic, why do they look barred? its because they are an allel of B, B^Sd.... oh and its a Sex linked gene like Barring(B)
