what would happen if I breed my falb fee male to wild type females?
It depends on if your male has one copy of the fee gene or 2. If it has 2, all chicks will be falb fee with one copy of the gene. If it has only 1 copy, the chicks will be half and half, normal wild and falb fee. The difference in if 1 copy of fee is present vs 2 is visual, the one copy will have more browns bleeding thru, especially around the head and neck.

I’m not extremely experienced in fee, I’ve just had my first hatch of them a couple months ago, but he looks like he has 2 copies.
