    feathered legs

    Bantam size

    naked necks

    Quote:Feathered Legs are Dominant, but expession will vary from breed to breed..

    Bantam size is not a single gene trait, size can very from mating to mating but from a Normal size bird mated to a Bantam(Generic Bantam) you can expect the chicks to be right in the middle of both parrent, now if you mate the chicks(Brother to sister) that's where it gets all weird, you will se Larg, Bantam and anything in the middle

    Naked Necks is a dominant trait

    I believe Millie have recessive mottling so at least one of their gene is recessive..

    Awesome thank you![​IMG] I have some chicks that have been hatching since Tuesday (the last one hatched sometime during the night) and I was trying to determine which roo fathered which chick.
