Ok so I would like to learn about color genetics for mostly feathers right know. If anyone would also like to ask questions come on. Maybe the genetic experts will come on here. Also remember try to limit your questions to no more than 2. And thanks in advance.

My first question is can you make a standard size red Cochin.

This is a good idea, genetics are so interesting! My question: what are some good books I should read to help me understand chicken genetics? It would need to be geared towards a beginner, all I know now is basic Mendelian genetics.
