    I know this has been asked before and I've searched through and read what I can but I just do not get colour genetics

    Is there anyway to completely dumb it down?
    Or someone that would take the time to actually teach me so I can understand it?

    I have tried so much and just cannot grasp it
    I've got calls and they're laying, right now they're in seperate pens but I'd like to breed a few and try a few different mixes as I think it could be interesting but I figure I should at least know what the colours are/going to be?

    I'm not stupid by any means, I just have a complete mental block on it and regardless of actually breeding, I'm an genuinely fascinated by it and would quite like to learn how it actually works!!!

    Thank you in advance

    Ps:please don't have a go I've tried to find the answers and read through the posts and the diagram with daffy and daisy and still don't get it [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    it is impossible to just explain it to you in a forum like this. There is a lot involved. Maybe you can pick up a "basic genetics" book, and start there.
