    I recently took a look at the chicken calculator site and have a few questions.how do you know what all the small letters stand for?I have only looked at the site using a smartphone so do I need to use the computer to view the full site for a legend?if there is not an explanation then how do you decifer all of those codes?

    try using a computer so you can see the entire thing.

    Lower case letters indicate recessive alleles, upper case ones indicate dominant alleles. Named allele combinations have the name listed.

    the reason I'm asking which one is the creator of http://kippenjungle.nl/Overzicht.htm is on BYC, his name is Henk69 and he can answer your questions, i think he's in Finland?
    or are you in BREEDBOOK... henk69 also did that one, but its a little different

    Yes, I am dutch, but it feels like finland right now.
    No, I haven't been able to adapt the chickencalculator for a mobile device, sorry.

    Rusty hackles and saddles are not shown. You may mimic them if you set e-locus to E^R instead of E and use Ml and/or cha/cha.
