Is the pied color caused by a (relatively) simple dominant/recessive inheritance rule? or are there a lot of genes involved?
Pretty simple - my understanding is that if you breed a white bird to a solid colored bird, all the babies are pied. Pied to solid, you get half pied and half solid. Pied to pied, you get 50% pied, 25% white, and 25% solid.
Great! thank you again.Sounds like it's the same inheritance rule as blue/black/splash in chickens.
