    I know that White leghorns have a dominant white gene but looking to find Plymouth White Rocks or Rhode island Whites with a dominant white gene. Not having much luck. Can't finish my breeding project till I have them. Anybody got any leads?

    Email a hatchery and see if the RIW they sell carries dominant white. Why are you looking for RIW or WPR with dominant white?

    I'm needing the dominant white gene to finish up my project. I'm wanting two kinds of colors off the same project and the dominant white gene from those birds will give me what I need.
